What is your progress to date?
Phase One is completed. We have come up with a basic conceptual framework for a restorative justice system that we think works.
This involved making decisions in a number of areas:
These are controversial areas in the field of restorative justice, and not everyone will agree with our conclusions. Think of them as working conclusions, meaning that they are based on lots of thought and debate, and set out to give us a way to move forward. However, they might need to be revisited as we continue to play out their implications.
In addition, we have done some initial work identifying key demographic data for our virtual RJ City. We have also begun creating an historical account of how the city embraced restorative justice. Both of those projects need lots of additional work
All this is written up in a paper with the descriptive title RJ City: Phase One.
