- Fourth National Conference on Restorative Justice
- From the conference website: On June 19-21, 2013, international academics, practitioners, and activists in the fields of restorative and racial justice will travel to Toledo, Ohio, for the Fourth National Restorative Justice Conference. As co-hosts and sponsors, Lourdes University and The University of Toledo Foundation are proud and excited to be part of this relevant and important event. The conference opens on Juneteenth, a holiday recognized by 42 states including Ohio. Juneteenth was established to commemorate the historical date of June 19, 1865, when slavery ended in the U.S. In the spirit of Juneteenth, the theme of the conference is “Keeping It Real – Race & Restorative Justice.” Presenters and attendees will explore restorative justice’s potential to heal and transform both historical harm and present-day inequities in justice systems, schools, and diverse communities.
- 2013 Canadian School of Peacebuilding
- From the 2013 Canadian School of Peacebuilding website: The Canadian School of Peacebuilding (CSOP), an institute of Canadian Mennonite University, offers a selection of 5-day courses each June. Courses can be taken for professional or personal development or for academic credit. The CSOP is a learning community of diverse peacebuilders who come together to learn, network and engage in peacebuilding. This requires respect, curiosity and a broad range of connecting points for both students and faculty.
- 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.
- EMU announces online course with Howard Zehr
- from Eastern Mennonite University's website: Restorative justice is a simple, intuitive concept. However, when implemented in practice, challenges and complexities arise. This course is intended for those who have some background in restorative justice, and through reading, discussion, and real-time conversations with leading practitioners and thinkers, participants will explore the principles and values of restorative justice along with challenges, dangers and pitfalls of it when put into practice.
