Like in many parts of the world, Nepal’s conventional justice system is mostly punishment-heavy, adversarial and top-down. It fails to notice — let alone address — the transformative ideals of justice and peacebuilding, such as the ones espoused by the restorative justice.
We, at the Nepal Institute of Justice , have been involved in the very formative stages of introducing restorative justice in Nepal in both judicial and community spheres. The Nepal Institute is set up as an exclusive forum to explore, promote and establish more functional alternatives to the conventional justice system in responding to the justice concerns in situations of crimes or conflicts. Such alternatives could be ones based on the values of restorative and non-adversarial justice so that lasting social transformation could be achieved in our societies, our country and across the globe.
Building on synergic potential for the transformation we aspire to have, we want to join hands with all organizations and individuals believing that true peace is achieved through justice. In this long peace-through-justice movement we have embarked upon, what matters most is your company, your solidarity.
Welcome to the Nepal Institute of Justice! Welcome to the movement!
