Restorative Justice in Diverse Multicultural Contexts

Lead Researcher: Don Clairmont

The central objective is to assess how the RJ program relates to diversity and multicultural constituencies, whether these be youths with special problems (e.g., residents under provincial care in group homes), youths and families from diverse cultural communities (e.g., immigrant communities) and those of diverse socio-economic status (especially the disadvantaged in socio-economic terms), and to identify assets and challenges in that regard. This project would closely ally with those dealing with race and gender issues in the conception and delivery of restorative justice in Nova Scotia.
