Taiwan forum on restorative justice
According to Chen, we cannot rely on judicial reform for restorative justice. This kind of justice must originate from social movements, as modeled in South Africa when people rose up and spoke against apartheid. Churches ultimately play an important role in such movements as well.
In light of recent conflicts between the government agencies and human rights activists, as well as clashes between ethnic groups, restorative human justice in Taiwan is becoming increasingly important with each passing day, said Chen.
