The National Center on Restorative Justice launched the Restorative Justice Research Community (RJRC) to support the advancement of restorative justice research.
The RJRC is an interdisciplinary academic community where researchers and scholars find collaboration, support, and inspiration. RJRC projects, events, and resources foster connections and creativity to help shape the future of restorative justice research. The RJRC currently seeks to advance three project initiatives:
Develop a research agenda on restorative justice in the context of the US criminal legal system,
Support research methods training and curriculum development to help grow the next generation of restorative justice researchers, and
Launch a community-based restorative justice research network (CBRN).
Administrative management of the RJRC is supported by our partner organization, the University of Vermont Justice Research Initiative.
