Global Innovation -Local (R)Evolution
The 2017 National Restorative Justice Symposium (NRJS) is being held at the Westin Hotel in downtown Ottawa, on unceded Algonquin territory, from November 19th-21st. This symposium is being hosted jointly by The Church Council on Justice and Corrections and the Collaborative Justice Program.
The NRJS is an opportunity to convene a national gathering of practitioners, researchers and academics, justice professionals, policy and law makers, educators, other experts and stakeholders, to consider, assess and discuss the innovative and transformative potential of restorative justice. This will be done through keynote presentations, training sessions, workshops, and dialogue circles.
Global Innovation - Local (R)Evolution
This theme draws attention to both global and local contributions to the restorative justice movement which has grown by leaps and bounds in many countries, including our own. Restorative justice is constantly evolving and improving how the world deals with harm and conflict, coming into greater use in many fields.
Now is the time to come together to share our innovations and to use this knowledge to push us into the next (r)evolution of restorative justice in Canada.
