Restorative Justice: What is It? How does it Work? For Whom?
Presented by Richard Barbieri
Thursday, May 21, 10:00 ET (USA & Canada)
This session will provide an introduction to RJ: its origins and history, from indigenous cultures to contemporary societies. It will also describe its design, and illustrate its worldwide use among youth and others.
Richard has a doctorate in literature and a master’s degree in mediation and conflict resolution and has been an educator at all levels from elementary school through college. A current member of MBBI and its Children and Youth ADR Working Group and a Board Member of the Association for Conflict Resolution, he is also Managing Editor of ACR’s magazine, ACResolution, whose Winter 2017 issue was devoted to Restorative Justice. He has trained extensively in that field, focusing on community, school, and prison applications. He currently works as with Soliya, an international program that brings together college students from North America, Europe, and the Muslim world for cross-cultural dialogue, where he holds an Advanced Facilitator Certificate from the Youth and Livelihoods Unit of UN-Habitat.
He has published widely in the field of mediation and conflict resolution, including print and online articles for Independent School, the Center for Spiritual and Ethical Education, mediate.com, and Family Mediation Quarterly.
