Restorative justice aims to mediate and reconcile tensions between offenders, victims and the community in a humanising way. It enables stakeholders to cooperate and come to an agreement on appropriate outcomes at different stages of the criminal process, not just in the pre-trial process. By separating the offense and the person, restorative justice relies on forgiveness and self-reflection to help rehabilitate the offender. This helps a smooth reintegration into society for all parties involved. Examples of restorative justice are forum sentencing and Aboriginal circle sentencing.
