Reliance on policing at the core of our model of public safety has put a priority on maintaining existing social order thus systemically perpetuating and reinforcing privilege, marginalization, inequality and harm for many, including those who are racialized, Indigenous, living in poverty, unhoused, experiencing gender-based violence, 2SLGBTQ+, differently abled, and living with mental health issues. Calls for transformation echo across movements and in official reports - from Black Lives Matter, Me Too/Times Up, and Idle No More movements to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada, the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls and the Restorative Inquiry for the Nova Scotia Home for Colored Children. The current experience of Covid-19 and the transformations required within our justice and social systems and human services in response have also revealed the need for a sustained shift in our ways of thinking about and securing public safety and justice. It is clear we need to reimagine safety and justice beyond policing. This requires more than operational reforms -- more than new training and tactics. It requires fundamental structural, system, and culture change in our understanding and approach to public safety and justice. This presentation considers the potential of a restorative approach for this re-imagining and the “relational shift” needed to realize it.

Professor Jennifer Llewellyn is the Chair in Restorative Justice and Director of the Restorative Research, Innovation & Education Lab at the Schulich School of Law, Dalhaousie University.
