Transforming Relationships Through Participatory Justice

The way in which citizens resolve their conflicts must reflect their values. This Report articulates some of the values that support the development of participatory justice. It also makes recommendations to the many actors involved in participatory justice: to the people who design participatory justice projects, to the citizens who wish to participate in them and to governments who support such initiatives. How we resolve conflicts defines who we are as a society. It must be part of an ongoing search for harmonious and respectful social relationships founded on principles of justice.
