In today’s RANGE of Care, we’re continuing our talk on productive disagreements. Joining us is Inga Laurent, Professor of Law at Gonzaga who studies, theorizes and helps implement restorative justice practices in court systems and outside of judicial settings like schools.
So how does the conversation from our last episode on productive disagreements in interpersonal relationships tie into a legal framework like restorative justice?
It’s in the name: restorative. The point isn’t to cast a person out of society or community. The point is to encourage a conversation in which the person or people who were harmed can gain closure and those who did harm can make amends.
If you want more of Inga’s insight, she’s an occasional columnist at The Inlander.
