Building the first restorative post-code in the world: Gavrielides' #rjweek annual blog
Happy International Restorative Justice Week 2022, and congratulations to all the practitioners, researchers and campaigners who kept the restorative justice flame burning.
This year, instead of writing my annual #rjweek blog, I decided to put my thoughts into a short video! This articulates my vision for creating the first restorative post-code in the world. This exciting journey has started in the SE16 London area, where the RJ4All home and community Centre is based.
This vision is based on the scant available data on restorative cities, and it aims to build a much needed evidence bace testing our theory on the restorative justice ethos. I have always said that restorative justice is more than just a practice such as mediation or circles. It is also more than just a theory. It is a holistic approach to addressing power abuse, and a guide that can help us navigate through life's challenges.
