RJWorld eConference, August 22 – 31, 2020: Robbie Robidoux & Wayne Northey

RJ World 2020 is a 10-day online showcase of more than 100 inspiring presenters from around the world – facilitators / practitioners / teachers / researchers / artists – who are passionate about sharing insights and ideas in the realm of restorative justice and restorative practices in all sectors.


WN: After my friend Robbie Robidoux watched David Milgaard and me on a Zoom presentation for this Conference, we decided to do one together as well!

Robbie has a riveting story to tell. We discuss as well the criminal justice system as a scapegoat mechanism in light of his story; in light too of René Girard‘s scapegoating theory, and application of Girard’s theory in this publication by my friend and Girardian scholar, Professor Vern Redekop: Scapegoats, the Bible, and Criminal Justice: Interacting with René Girard.

The Conference is an event for workers, volunteers, and those interested anywhere in the Restorative/Transformative Justice/Justice fields. It draws presenters from all over the world.
