RJ City – a new way to explore restorative justice

We encourage you to explore RJ City, a website that seeks to be “an adventurous and perhaps audacious attempt to imagine a city of 1,000,000 responding as restoratively as possible to all crimes, all victims and all offenders.” RJ is shorthand for restorative justice, an approach to justice that seeks to restore the relationships broken by criminal behaviour. “Restorative justice is a broad term which encompasses a growing social movement to institutionalize peaceful approaches to harm, problem-solving and violations of legal and human rights.” [Wikipedia] Numerous examples of restorative justice are described on this website, and elsewhere on the internet.

SEI 2007: Making Peace in the Household of God

The Prairie Centre for Ecumenism is pleased to announce that its Summer Ecumenical Institute for 2007 will take place in Saskatoon June 26-29. The theme of the conference is conflict resolution and transformation within and among churches, under the working title “Making Peace in the Household of God.”
