A/Xarra Restorative Justice Forum


A/Xarra Restorative Justice Forum

The Xarra Restorative Justice Forum was established at CAS in 2018 as a co-design knowledge and research partnership with a number of Civic and Traditional Khoi and San structures. It has functioning research commissions in land, language, human remains, women and youth. It has also recently established a Covid 19 research commission. It has played a leading role in transformation initiatives at UCT such as the Naming of the Sarah Baartmann Memorial Hall and the teaching of foundational Khoekhoegowab to the community.
