Learning from Indigenous Restorative Justice Processes

Thursday 21 March 2024
18:30-20:00 (UK time)

Two hands painted like the world releasing doves

What can we learn from the traditional methods for resolving conflict in Afghanistan and Pakistan? In this session, Ali Gohar – an expert practitioner and scholar on the subject – will teach us about these indigenous practices.

As Quakers we are often questioning and seeking to change the way our justice systems operate to more closely reflect our belief in that of God in everyone. What do the traditional restorative justice systems used by communities in Pakistan and Afghanistan have to teach us about other ways to approach harm and repair?

In this online session we will listen to Ali Gohar and have the opportunity to engage with him and each other in dialogue to better understand these indigenous restorative justice systems and how we might apply their wisdom in our own lives and communities.
