ABSTRACT

The present research has done justice to the expectation of the Researchers to be a path breaking one in the region of Tamilnadu for launching Restorative justice, first as a class based intervention, and then to be offered after enrichment, a whole school programme. The inherent features such as disciplining the students intrinsically, reducing the misconducts ranging from small cheating to causing wounds or loss to others, inducting students in peer mediation, and organizing Restorative justice mediation / conferencing for achieving reparation and restoration of relationships, and converting the entire institution as a place of social healing are shown to be a viability with RJ. The present research enjoys the credit of successfully testing 75% of the RJ practice in schools. The reduction of misconducts in students and increase in their psychological capitals is a laudable performance of the Restorative justice in the maiden run for its approval and consideration.
