Restorative justice – is a process, managed by a mediator, due to which a delinquent and a victim discuss the situation that has occurred together and decide about further resolution of a conflict and reimbursement of damages.
This approach allows participants to make their own decisions to resolve conflict and to take responsibility for consequences of this situation. A court usually takes this decision into account during sentencing.
Practices that are used during the restorative justice are the following:
• mediation between a victim and delinquent,
• circle of social justice,
• family conference,
• forum of civic justice.
