Justice, fairness and mediation

7 Conclusion

This short course has considered the concepts of justice and fairness, and how they are applied. By focusing on restorative justice and alternative forms of dispute resolution – most particularly, mediation – it has highlighted that rather than being abstract or academic concepts, justice and fairness are acutely relevant to all our lives.

By enhancing our understanding of both justice and fairness, those working in or with communities can strengthen empowerment and engagement for the benefit of all.
