'Thailand Institute of Justice (TIJ) conducted a National Symposium on Restorative Justice, inviting key stakeholders in the criminal justice system, other interested parties, and experts to share useful ideas and identify essential obstacles in the criminal justice system and its problem solving mechanisms. It is hoped that Restorative Justice can alleviate overcrowding in prisons and congestion in the court system, and effectively reform offenders so that they can return into society. It is hoped that it can empower and help victims, restore their well-being, ensure effective reparations and engage the community in assisting victims and offenders in reintegrating into the community.'
