Campagnolo Lecture features retired judge

Iona Campagnolo Lecture April 4 will feature speaker retired judge Barry Stuart, formerly of the Yukon Territorial Court.

The second annual Iona Campagnolo Lecture in Restorative Justice on April 4 will feature speaker retired judge Barry Stuart, formerly of the Yukon Territorial Court.

A pioneer in the introduction of circle sentencing, his landmark decision in Regina versus Moses provided a key framework for the use of circles in sentencing offenders in Criminal Code matters.

The title of his talk is Rethinking Our Journey to Smart Justice, which he will deliver April 4 at 7:30 in the Stan Hagen Theatre at North Island College.

For the past 35 years, his work has focused on resolving conflicts and improving the decision-making processes in the public and private sectors. He has worked in a wide range of many challenging settings to develop skills and processes to engage conflict in ways that generate innovative solutions and build effective relationships.

He is internationally known through his training, teaching, writings and involvement as a mediator, negotiator and facilitator.

As chief negotiator for Yukon land claims, he negotiated the Umbrella Land Claims Agreement. He has worked in several communities in North America and in Third World countries to develop community and restorative justice processes.

For this work, Judge Stuart received the Governor General’s Medal. For his work in Papua New Guinea on their constitution, justice processes and on establishing provincial government, he received the Independence Medal of Papua New Guinea.

Barry’s principal interest lies in creating safe places for people to engage in the difficult dialogues needed to move through seemingly intractable differences.

He has worked in several communities in Canada, the United States and in Third World countries to develop community and restorative justice processes as an integral part of enhancing community well-being and sustainability.

He recently concluded a three-week project in Brazil on the establishment of restorative justice among aboriginal communities there.

The Campagnolo Lectures were established last year by the Community Justice Centre to honour Campagnolo’a work as its patron for the past five years and in recognition of her 80th birthday.
