Journal of Restoration, Rehabilitation, and Reentry


The Western Restorative Justice and Reentry Center (WRJRC) is pleased to house this refereed interdisciplinary journal committed to exploring reformation and healing. The purpose of Journal of Restoration, Rehabilitation, and Reentry (R3) is to promote research in the field of non-punitive approaches to solving crime problems by providing a space for like-minded scholars who focus on the areas of restorative justice, correctional rehabilitation, post-incarceration reentry, and decreasing recidivism to facilitate and disseminate such research. R3 serves as a space to promote research aligned with these goals; promote the ability to collaborate and disseminate research conducted by both affiliated and non-affiliated researchers through the journal’s website, related conferences, and occasional seminars; and the use of the journal as a way of advocating for the importance of alternatives to incarceration.

There is no darkness so great that it cannot be penetrated by the light from a single flame.
