Nova Scotia Restorative Justice Community University Research Alliance

The NSRJ-CURA is an alliance of Community and University researchers and organizations focused on research related to the institutionalization of restorative justice.


The rapid embrace of RJ by academics and policymakers has created a demand for more detailed and comprehensive research on the practice of restorative justice. Research is required that explores the issues and problems that arise with institutionalized practice.


The NSRJ-CURA seeks to fill this gap and is uniquely situated to do so given the partners’ experience and involvement with the implementation and development of the Nova Scotia Restorative justice Program.


The NSRJ-CURA partnership is funded primarily through a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada’s CURA program.
