SST 295-02 - Special Topic: Restorative Justice: Theory and Practice

1 credits
The modern Restorative Justice (RJ) movement began out of a sense that Western criminal justice systems fail to satisfy the needs of those impacted by wrongdoing. RJ addresses justice at interpersonal, community, and societal levels. This course will serve as an introduction to the growing field of RJ, including its guiding principles and values, its range of skills and practices, and the various arenas in which it has advanced over the past forty years.

Prerequisite: Second-year standing.
Note: Dates February 3 to February 19. Short course deadlines apply.
Instructor: Nixon
