Description
The Restorative Justice Project focuses on victim-initiated communication involving felony offenders and their victims, in conjunction with the Wisconsin Department of Corrections\' Office of Victim Services and Programs. Students work with victims and offenders to prepare for meetings, and then facilitate in-person meetings, which usually take place in Wisconsin prisons, or other forms of contact. In the Restorative Justice Project, students have an opportunity to work outside of the adversarial processes which characterize most of the criminal justice system. This project attempts to involve crime victims more fully in the system by providing the opportunity for communication, often face-to-face meetings, between the victims of crime and those who have offended against them or one of their family members. Students also have the opportunity to practice mediation skills and to assess the effectiveness of an alternative dispute resolution process in the criminal justice field, including through Victim-Offender Conferencing.
