Contents: The UK-based Restorative Justice Consortium was formed in 1997 to bring together a wide range of organizations with an interest in Restorative Justice as a means of resolving conflict and promoting reconciliation for the public benefit. By providing networking tools such as conferences, seminars, and a quarterly newsletter, the Consortium develops and promotes best practices for evaluating and guiding restorative practices. Researchers will be interested in the organization's "Research" section (click on the "Resources" link), which contains reports and analysis dating back to the 1990s. The Restorative Justice Consortium publishes FAQs on using restorative justice in schools, prisons, and the criminal justice system at large. Information is also provided on restorative justice policy and research from countries outside the UK. The site's "Policy" section (also under "Resources") offers government papers, legislation, and published reports, organized by date. A handy glossary is also featured on the site.
