Are you interested in addressing conflict and achieving peace through viable, sustainable methods?
The advanced certificate in restorative justice provides the learner with an alternative approach to conflict resolution on an interpersonal, community and global level.
Restorative justice expands the conventional conflict resolution approaches in two ways. Firstly, restorative justice takes the theory and practice of approaches to conflict, including healing, reconciliation and restoring relationships beyond the realm of the criminal justice system. Secondly, restorative justice seeks to understand and address the root causes of systemic conflict, such as political, economic and social inequality and injustice.
The advanced certificate begins with a theoretical study of restorative justice, which leads to a more directed study that is related to the learner’s area of expertise. The certificate culminates with a practicum, where the learner is expected to demonstrate an enactment of the tenets of restorative justice in a meaningful and relevant setting. Geared towards working professionals and continuing students, our part-time restorative justice program lets you enhance your existing expertise with a focus on peace and justice. You’ll learn practical peace and justice skills you can apply to any work, relationship or community setting.
Take this program if you are interested in addressing conflict and achieving peace through viable, sustainable methods. You’ll especially like this program if you’ve already completed our peace studies program and want to add a practice-based component to your studies.
