The ACT Law Reform Advisory Council (LRAC) has now completed its Progress Report on Canberra - becoming a restorative city based on an initial round of consultations. LRAC examined the fostering of restorative practices in the ACT with a focus on legal and justice dimensions. A restorative approach can lead to creative solutions to shared problems using restorative processes which have the potential to promote safer and more connected communities.
The LRAC Paper covers a range of new issues as well as additional information on the questions raised in the Issues Paper. LRAC hopes to hear from more members of our community in the second round of consultations. The date for next round of submissions is 30 March 2018.
