Practice to Research
Over the last decade restorative and community justice practices have increased exponentially across the United States. Despite a growing consensus regarding their positive outcomes the field needs a stronger foundation based on well designed and conducted research. This track seeks to present and promote quality research on basic questions. We envision "think and do" breakout sessions allowing researchers and practitioners to discuss potential collaborations, projects, and research questions. All modes of inquiry are of interest, whether traditional quantitative/qualitative social science or newer ones rooted in critical, interactive, and inclusive mechanisms of assessment such as participatory action research.
