The Ninth Annual Symposium on Restorative Justice and the Death Penalty, Co-hosted by UVU Integrated Studies and Peace and Justice Studies, will be held on October 22, 2013 in the UVU Library auditorium, room LI 120. Designed to publicly deliberate the ethical implications of capital punishment, the annual Symposium on Restorative Justice and the Death Penalty examines current punitive justice methods and highlights an alternative approach known as restorative justice. Restorative justice is an expanding global movement intended to balance the needs of both offenders and victims by reconciling relationships.
