Restorative Justice International (RJI) is a global association and network advocating for victims-driven restorative justice. Restorative justice proposes systemic justice reform that puts the victim in the center of the system in ways that allow for healing of crime victims, and communities, while holding offenders accountability.  Discussions about restorative justice occur daily through Restorative Justice International at and via the RJI blog.
