The area of restorative practice (RP) is gaining increasing traction in the area of conflict intervention.  It covers a wide range of contexts. The Department of Education and Skills has a policy to have all teachers trained in this area. RP is also increasingly used to address the harm caused by crime and offences against people and communities (restorative justice). It focuses on building healthy relationships and engaging in dialogue to prevent harm and ‘repair’ previous harm caused in a variety of contexts (restorative practices/restorative approaches). There is increasing use of restorative justice within the criminal justice system including in youth justice, the Probation Service, the Irish Prison Service and An Garda Síochána. In addition, its use in youth and community work is growing, as are efforts to apply RP in workplaces and universities.
