Restorative justice is a theory of justice that emphasizes repairing the harm caused by criminal behavior. It is best accomplished through cooperative processes that allow all willing stakeholders to meet and resolve the problems. In many instances, restorative justice is derived from the rites of various ancient, cultural, and spiritual contexts. This study seeks to provide an overview of this concept and the restorative processes undertaken in traditional life in Indonesia. The study was conducted through a literature review of the results of some research on traditional customary law practices. The results of this study describe how a form of restorative justice has been carried out in traditional communities in Indonesia.
