Restorative Justice

Speaker: Charito Calvachi-Mateyko

What paradigm can we use to reflect in the human experience of what humanity understand as justice? Is our justice language charged with preconceptions? What ancient principles we carry on in the modern concept of justice in general and criminal justice in particular? A former lawyer turned Restorative Justice professional will discuss the theory of restorative justice as an alternative to the current social construct on justice issues. Ms. Calvachi-Mateyko, gives a brief overview of the challenges presented by the current punitive system and invites the participants to consider a community healing path to handle justice today.
