Description de l’éditeur

Restorative justice traces its roots to Indigenous traditions worldwide, yet few books in the field present Indigenous voices speaking directly about Native ways of responding to harms. Justice As Healing: Indigenous Ways does just that. It is a collection of articles from the Justice As Healing newsletter produced by the Native Law Centre of Canada at the University of Saskatchewan. Drawing on a decade of Native writing on restorative justice and on community-based, healing responses to conflicts and crimes, this substantive book features forty-five articles from community members, scholars, judges, lawyers, and Elders, most of whom are Indigenous.

Some of the featured contributors include:

S James Anaya, professor of Human Rights Law and Policy at the University of Arizona and Associate Justice for the Court of Appeals of the Yavapai-Prescott Indian Tribe
