Jamaica: Restorative Justice

Jamaica Express announces a lecture on Restorative Justice in Jamaica taking place on Thursday 19 January at the Ames Courtroom, Harvard Law School at 7:30pm. The event is sponsored by the Berkman Center and the featured speakers are Kevin Wallen, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, and Courtney Kazembe, who, according to the Berkman web site, are “working with the government of Jamaica to create a program of restorative justice that addresses the problems that often arise when inmates are paroled. . . . The program seeks to constructively bring unresolved enmities to the surface and deal with them before parole.” The event will also be webcast.
