The Centre for Restorative Justice (CRJ) is a world leader in experimental and theoretical research on restorative justice in a range of areas including crime, conflict, peacebuilding and more recently environmental restorative justice. Its mission is to produce, synthesise and apply primary field studies wherever they can be conducted, translating that research into evidence-based policies around the world.

The Centre works closely with the Canberra Restorative Community which is convened by RegNet’s Mary Ivec.

RegNet’s John Braithwaite, Co-Director of the Centre, produces his own blog War. Crime. Regulation which closely relates to the work of the Centre.


The Centre for Restorative Justice is led by Professor John Braithwaite and Dr Miranda Forsyth
