CRJS - 200. Restorative Justice


3 credit(s)
This Core course for the new Criminal Justice Studies major will trace the history of Restorative Justice and the expanding range of restorative and transformational practices. Students will be introduced to the foundational principles and practices of restorative justice and will gain a keen understanding of the needs and roles of the stakeholders involved (those who are victims of crime, those who have caused harm, their surrounding communities and the justice system). Students will also become familiar with the fundamental values behind restorative justice, and special focus will be placed on connections between Franciscan values and concepts of justice and Restorative Justice. Students will be exposed to many different restorative and transformational practices, including circles, conferencing, victimoffender dialogue, and peace-building workshops, as well as the divergent arenas in which these practices are utilized. First-hand exposure to various modes of practice will be achieved during field trips.
