Can victims, their families, and communities—even countries—heal after unspeakable acts of violence? In this Academy Evenings "Talk to Me" series of discussions, Janine Geske, a Distinguished Professor of Law at Marquette University and former Wisconsin Supreme Court Justice, and Scott Straus, associate professor of political science at UW-Madison and coordinator of the university's Wisconsin Human Rights Initiative, consider the role of restorative justice in the U.S., emphasizing reparation to victims and community members, and justice after atrocity in Africa. Geske and Straus discuss how these and other approaches to violence and oppression may be going beyond our traditional understanding of crime and punishment. Recorded on September 21, 2010, at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art lecture hall in Overture Center for the Arts, Madison.
