'Restorative justice' is a process that brings those harmed by crime or conflict, and those responsible for the harm, in contact with each other, enabling everyone affected by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward.
In criminal justice, the restorative process allows victims to come face-to-face with offenders and gives them the opportunity to get answers. The scheme also allows offenders to be held responsible for what they have done and make them understand, take responsibility and amend changes.
