Restorative Justice As One of the Methods of Disengagement from Terrorism in Indonesia
This paper explains about disengagement by using the concept of restorative justice to ex- convicts of terrorism and their networks in Indonesia. Restorative justice is carried out by voluntarily bringing together the terrorist bombing victims with ex-convicted terrorism cases and their networks in Indonesia. Focus group discussions are used in carrying out restorative justice thus ex-convicts of terrorism and their networks can be more open in issuing opinions. The findings in this study are the sincerity of terrorist bombing victims who have forgiven the ex-convicts of terrorism, even before the meeting, have made the ex-convicts of terrorism feel touched, cried and apologized for the actions of their friends and what they themselves have done. In addition, restorative justice is not effective if it is carried out against former terrorism inmates from Poso, Central Sulawesi. Restorative justice can be one of the methods of disengagement for ex-convicted terrorists and their networks which will be effective in the future. Building a good relationship with former terrorism inmates and their networks need to be done before the implementation of restorative justice.
