What is restorative justice?
Well, the Criminal Justice System of America has been broken and there are only a few political desires to change that. The movement describes an aim to redirect the retributive response of the society to crime restorative justice.
Simply, restorative justice is an approach to justice in which seeks to reform the harm by providing an opportunity for those harmed and those who take responsibility for the harm to communicate about and address to their needs in the aftermath of a crime.
Most of people can understand by this, restorative justice is a kind of a theory of justice that emphasizes recreating or reformating the harm caused by any criminal behavior. Along with this, the system of restorative justice works where the victim and the offender sit in front of each other and take out the solution that allows both of them to reform from the crime rather than lock the offender away. This system, it ensures that the offender is still part of society and also contributes in them.
It helps to avoid sending people to jail but still, it ensures offenders are held responsible. This system has been adopted in South Africa, and Canada including Europe as well. Some of the states are practicing to form restorative justice.
