THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RESTORATIVE JUSTICE AND MEDIATION

RESTORING JUSTICE AND HELPING PEOPLE HEAL A NEW OUTLOOK ON JUSTICE IN KANSAS CITY, MO

There are many similarities between the roles of restorative justice practitioners and legal mediators, but there are also some important differences. In mediation, both parties have equal footing. It is intended to facilitate dialogue between two parties who have a dispute. In a restorative justice meeting, there is a clear victim vs. offender stance. The offender has already admitted to the crime, so the discussion focuses on a resolution rather than a dispute.
