The Restorative Lab

The Restorative Research, Innovation and Education Lab, or the “Restorative Lab”, at Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law was founded in the spring of 2020. We are a change lab creating and sharing the knowledge needed for social innovation across systems and sites in Canada and around the world. The Restorative Lab serves as a hub for researchers, partners, and communities, from around the world, to convene and work together. We are focused on supporting collaboration and learning to foster innovation, aimed at realizing a more just and inclusive world through a restorative approach.

A restorative approach aims at establishing just relations and creating strong and healthy communities, social wellbeing, and inclusive economies. The Restorative Lab is grounded in deep partnerships and collaborations among individuals, organizations, institutions and systems in government and community that are core to achieving a more just and inclusive society. We work closely with a broad range of partners in Canada and internationally committed to taking a restorative approach to tackle complex social problems and challenges and realize transformative and lasting outcomes.
