Restorative Justice, Responsive Regulation & Complex Problems
From the conference announcement:
Restorative justice offers values and practices to make regulation responsive to families and communities. Responsive regulation offers a framework to bring together the know-how of practitioners and regulators to solve complex problems. But little theoretical and empirical work is available to guide and unite their efforts. This conference seeks to encourage dialogue on activating citizenship and governance to address problems in a variety of environments and in respect of differing kinds of entities including governments, regulatory agencies, corporate organizations, neighborhoods, communities and families. Proposals are invited from proponents within the community, government, business, and academe on the integration of restorative justice and responsive regulation.

Certificate in Restorative Justice (delivered online)
From Simon Fraser University's website:
An idea with deep roots in Aboriginal and many faith-based communities, restorative justice is enjoying a resurgence. While holding offenders responsible for repairing the damage they have done, it takes a community-minded approach to managing criminal and other conflict. The Certificate in Restorative Justice introduces you to the philosophy behind this powerful concept. Moving beyond theory, it also examines restorative practices such as mediation, conferencing, and circles, and how to use these methods in conflict situations and community development.
