restitution

a process whereby damage to others which is discovered and admitted leads to compensatory actions. Such restorative justice goes beyond any retributive punishment enacted against the wrongdoer, which may crudely be 'an eye for an eye' or a more sensitively tuned treatment. It is designed additionally or instead as an opportunity to begin to make amends in personal terms for any hurt done.
