  • Need


    The lack of unity and consistency in various restorative justice databases across the world can have a serious impact on the research and practice of Restorative Justice.

    Despite volumes of writings in the area, restorative justice remains distant and misunderstood by the public and professionals.

    In order to deliver the highest-quality services and academia, a cohesive approach, incorporating creative and accessible materials is necessary.


    RJ for All (RJ4all) will provide a platform where anyone can access, create and review information about Restorative Justice.

    An "RJ wiki" will include information from academics and practitioners, as well as the layperson, providing a multi-dimensional conversation about RJ.

    The Internet Journal of RJ will provide a free resource to the highest level of academia on RJ.

    Free training and educational material will also be uploaded.

  • Aims

    Success will be measured against the number of downloads and visits to the website.

    Aim 2

    Make restorative justice accessible to the public.


    » Through a free "RJ wiki" where key restorative justice related terms can be looked up. Also through engagement with the media.
