5th Restorative Justice Aotearoa National and 3rd Restorative Practices International Annual Conferences 23 – 27 November 2011 Amora Hotel, Wellington, New Zealand Whanaungatanga; Building Relationships through Restorative Practices Welcome E ngā iwi, e ngā reo, e ngā karangatanga maha o ngā hau e whā, tēnei te mihi atu ki a koutou katoa.   All peoples, all voices, all the many relations from the four winds, I greet you all     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 Practices International. 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.   Thanks to our Sponsors:   Platinum Sponsor; Ministry of Justice - Tāhū o te Ture Sponsored by; Te Puni Kokiri - Ministry of Maori Affairs Supported by; The Henwood Trust Conference Publicity We would be extremely grateful if you could assist us in publicising the conference by distributing our conference flyer to your work colleagues and displaying it in your workplace.
