Abstract

This major project report investigates the opportunity to improve linkages between restorative justice and crime prevention through social development by defining them and exploring their inter-relationships. Study results will help bridge the information gap between the two social development approaches. This may lead to the real possibility of permanent positive change to improve social cohesion within my community of Yellowknife, Northwest Territories (NT) in Canada.
Sponsorship of this study is provided by the Northern Director of the National Crime Prevention Centre of Canada in hopes of enabling a seamless, integrated approach to crime prevention through social development, restorative justice initiatives, and aboriginal justice strategies that arise from native self-governance.
The research component of this study involves numerous individual interviews (8) and two focus group sessions.
