We are delighted to be able to offer you an opportunity to attend this exciting and unique
conference which is a joint project between Restorative Justice Aotearoa and Restorative
New Zealand was one of the first countries in the world to enshrine the practice of
restorative justice into legislation and at the inaugural RPI conference in Queensland,
Australia in 2007, NZ delegates offered to host the 2011 conference. So here we are,
honouring our promises!
This will be the 3rd RPI International Conference, the second was held in Vancouver,
Canada in 2009, and the 5th Conference for RJ Practitioners that RJA has hosted.
We are confident that the combined efforts of both organisations will result in a once in a
life time opportunity to hear inspiring and challenging international key speakers, and for
delegates to participate in a range of interactive workshops. What better excuse to escape
to Aotearoa, the Land of the Long White Cloud, hobbits and Taniwha – depicted in our logo.
