During this week, the Ararteko wishes to highlight that restorative justice allows both the offender or aggressor and the injured party or victim of any type of crime or conflict to be reintegrated in society as social assets, while engaging society in the rehabilitation and reintegration.
Restorative Justice Week is celebrated around the world during the third week of November. The theme of this year's week is Protect and Empower the Person Harmed. This international movement was founded in Canada in 1996 and is coordinated in Europe by the European Forum for Restorative Justice, the leading international entity, with whom the Ararteko has been working closely in recent years.
