Nepal’s conventional justice system is mostly prosecution-driven, punishment-heavy and adversarial. It fails to notice — let alone address — the transformative ideals of justice, such as the ones espoused by the restorative and collaborative justice.

We, at the Nepal Institute of Justice , have been involved in the very formative stages of introducing restorative justice in Nepal through our previous engagements in various organizations. The Nepal Institute is set up as an exclusive forum to explore, promote and establish more functional alternatives to the conventional justice in addressing situations of crimes or conflicts. Such alternatives could be ones based on the values of restorative, community and collaborative justice so that lasting social transformation can be achieved in our societies, our country and then beyond.

Building on synergic potential for the transformation we aspire to have, we want to join hands with every justice-minded individual and organization across the country and beyond. In this long walk towards new restorative futures, what matters the most is your company, your solidarity.

Welcome to Nepal Institute of Justice! Welcome to change!
