Mr. Thibault Martin is Professor of Sociology at the University of Québec in Outaouais, Canada. His presentation will be followed by a screening of the documentary film “Circles” (National Film Board Canada).
Circles examines the use of sentencing circles - an alternative approach to justice - as undertaken in aboriginal communities of the Yukon Territory. In traditional court procedures, the accused is brought before a judge, possibly a jury, and legal counsel seeks to establish guilt or innocence and the appropriate remedy.
