RUPERT ROSS is a retired assistant Crown Attorney for the District of Kenora, Ontario. Starting in 1985, he conducted criminal prosecutions for more than twenty remote Ojibway and Cree First Nations communities in northwestern Ontario.ross-poster-returning-to-the-teachings-fall-page-001

His first book, Dancing with a Ghost, started his exploration of aboriginal visions of existence and became a bestseller. His second book, Returning to the Teachings, was also a bestseller and examined the aboriginal preference for the “peacemaker justice” he observed during a three-year secondment with Justice Canada. Both books were shortlisted for the Gordon Montour Award for the best Canadian non-fiction book on social issues, and are presently used in universities and colleges across North America.

Following his retirement, Ross was awarded the prestigious 2011 National Prosecution Award for Humanitarianism, and the Ontario Crown Attorneys Association has created an award named after him. For more information, click here

RJ Resource of the Month-July 2016

Posted by admin.

“…current mediation and conferencing strategies too often focus on the interpersonal dimensions of crime and ignore the deeper roots of  the trouble at hand as found in class, race/ethnicity, and gender-based, systemic conflict.”   This paper is already 16 years old…does it still have some light to shed on the current state of affairs within the field of restorative justice?  Or have restorative justice practices evolved to take on structural aspects of crime?  Have a great reading:) Here is the article: Structural Aspects of Crime
