Justicia Juvenil Restaurativa in Peru

Nov 29, 2011

This 14 minute video highlights the Justicia Juvenil Restaurativa project in Lima, Peru. The project started in 2005 as a partnership between the foundation Terre des Hommes and the Peruvian NGO, AsociaciĆ³n Encuentros Casa de la Juventud. In the video, ex-offenders, social workers, police officers, judges, and prosecutors explain the programme and the various services offered. 

One former gang leader talks about how his gang involvement led him to kill his own brother. However, through the restorative justice programme he came to realise that he needed to work to restore the community. 


Terre des hommes

A victim describes her hesitancy in meeting with her offender, but describes the encounter as an opportunity to gain understanding. 

The video is in Spanish with English subtitles.
