Restorative Justice in practice, is a philosophy based on a set of principles for responding to harm and wrongdoing that is victim-centered. The focus of restorative justice lies in holding the offender accountable to the laws or rules that were broken, and to the individuals that were harmed in the process.
Within this philosophy, wrongdoing is viewed as:
A violation of a person
A violation upon the community
A violations of a discipline code or public law.
