Abstract:
During its International Expert Seminar held in New York in February of 2013, the United Nations Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples asked the following question: “What positive examples and lessons learned can be identified regarding instances of non-custodial, inclusive, community-focused and restorative approaches to criminal justice matters?” This paper will examine two Western jurisdictions that have recognized and experimented with Indigenous approaches to justice, from the highest court to a small neighborhood pilot project.
