"A Restorative Approach to Justice: Opportunities and Implications for Justice in Newfoundland"

Restorative justice has soared since 2000 when Canada led the working group that generated unanimous support from all member states for the UN Guidelines on expanding restorative justice. Canada has renewed its commitment, sponsoring the renewal of these principles at the UN in 2018. Restorative justice for youth crime and family group conferencing in child protection are widespread internationally. Their success has led to the expansion of a restorative approach in adult justice, education, workplace discipline/conflict resolution, elder care, peacebuildng and human rights.

Professor Llewellyn will examine the growth and development of a restorative approach to justice in Canada in areas including criminal justice, civil justice, human rights, labour and employment and public inquiries.
