WIHEA Seminar: 'Restorative Justice at Warwick: Could it Work?'

'Restorative Justice at Warwick: Could it Work?'

This event took place on Thursday, 13 May 2021.

Following on from the WIHEA Symposium 'Restorative Justice in Higher Education' on 22 April 2021 which looked at the higher education context generally, this webinar represented an opportunity for staff and students at Warwick to explore how restorative justice (RJ) practices may fit within our practices, for example, in teaching or dealing with disagreement or discipline (such as plagiarism).

Dr Amanda Wilson (Warwick Law School), one of the speakers at the Symposium co-led the session together with Dr Imogen Davies (Warwick Medical School) and Dr Jane Bryan (Warwick Law School). They spoke in more detail about some of the advantages Warwick may enjoy if RJ were to be integrated within its practices and some things that would need to be considered.

This event developed into a supportive space where innovative ideas were discussed and considered amongst peers, regardless of prior knowledge of RJ or attendance at the Symposium.

Who was the event aimed at?

All Warwick staff and students but particularly those with an interest in conflict management, such as students and staff involved in managing teams (including leading seminars), discipline, academic integrity, and residential life.
