The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Pioneering Restorative Justice: A New Response to Urban Crime.

Gerard, Gena and Kris S. Nelson.

A 1998 demonstration project of how inner city neighborhoods can reduce street crime and build community is drawing considerable attention because it is the first neighborhood-based restorative justice program in the country to deal with urban crimes committed by adult offenders. NPCR is largely responsible for the creation of the new Community Conferencing program operated by four urban core neighborhoods in Minneapolis. It brings offenders, victims, and community volunteers together to discuss the crime and develop a formal plan of reparations to victim and community that will help heal injuries and integrate the offender into the community. The program gives citizens a key role in restoring their community to health.
