About the Author

Kristin Reimer is a Senior Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University, Australia. Kristin works to advance the idea of education as a humanizing practice. Humanizing education is focused on the whole needs (not just academic) of the individual and the larger world, implementing educational practices that assist us to recognize each person's inherent worth and strengthen the essential ties that bind us together. Restorative Justice Education (RJE), the main focus of Kristin's work, is one such humanizing approach in schools. With RJE, educators focus on building strong relationships in schools and rigorous, healthy learning environments.
Mervi Kaukko works as a Professor of Multicultural Education in the Faculty of Education and Culture at Tampere University, Finland, and is an adjunct research fellow at Monash University, Australia. Mervi's research is mostly framed within practice theories, focusing on refugee andmigrant studies and global education. Mervi's Finnish-Australian research study investigates refugee students' day-to-day educational practices, and she is also involved in an international research project focusing on young refugees' relational wellbeing, and a longitudinal study exploring asylum-seeking students' experiences in higher education in Australia.
