Care is a fundamental requirement of human existence; we literally cannot live with it. But modern law and legal institutions are largely indifferent to the need to foster relationships of care between citizens, favouring instead the protection of individual rights and freedoms. But restorative justice, reflecting its biblical inspiration, can be most helpfully conceptualised as a relational justice of care that seeks to restore dignity, trust, responsibility and care to harmed relationships.
