This discussion seeks to answer the following: in examining harm caused to children by those who enabled the perpetrators, are restorative justice principles an effective mechanism for demanding accountability while examining the harmful impact on the victim-survivor? Can restorative justice be used in conjunction with the criminal law to achieve both goals? Two persons with lived experiences involved in highly publicized criminal cases will share their perspectives.
