Objective(s): The purpose of this project is to identify and explain where crime prevention through social development intercepts with restorative justice, in order to provide an integrated, seamless delivery approach. One objective is to suggest a new and renewed community culture that results from dialogue amongst participants about restorative justice and crime prevention through social development. Another objective will be to define the roles of restorative justice and crime prevention. A further objective is to define the roles and responsibilities of leadership in social development initiatives from a systems thinking, "globalized" perspective. Results of this study will be articulated in recommendations of integrative approaches that can be used by leaders to close information and social fabric gaps between levels of social funding for prevention of crime in the community of Yellowknife. The study will involve face-to-face interviews with 4 to 6 individuals and a focus group consisting of 6 to 8 people. Participants for both the interviews and focus group will be from restorative justice, crime prevention, social development, and community member "business" or "concerned citizen" backgrounds. Participants will be audiotaped. Participation is voluntary and confidentiality will be maintained.
