Integrating Peace, Justice and Development in a Relational Approach to Peacebuilding
Restorative Justice, Relational Theory, Peacebuilding, Feminist Legal Theory
This paper considers how restorative justice as a theory of justice grounded in feminist relational theory can offer a conceptual framework from which to understand and approach justice, peace and development and their interrelationship in the context of peacebuilding. Feminist relational theory grounds a conception of justice that moves beyond the narrow focus on justice as merely an element or stage of peacebuilding to an understanding of peacebuilding as the work of building sustainable just social relationships.
