Summer Internship in Immigration and Refugee Law in India
How to ensure that restorative justice method is used to correct juvenile offender’s conduct in a developing country with new government.
Generally, in the United States, we follow the punitive method to deter the repetition of juvenile offender’s conduct. However, in some countries like New Zealand, the primary method is restorative, meaning that the focus is changed from punishing the offensive conduct, to teaching underage offenders other skills to make sure that they thrive in the community. The Asia Foundation works on a project that is developing a comprehensive restorative justice program in Kathmandu and the challenge is to see if it is possible for a developing country is able to use implement this unconventional method correctively and effectively.
Working directly under judges who have worked with juvenile offenders for decades to develop this comprehensive plan by directly communicating with other legal agencies and community members.
