Overview

Advocates of restorative justice question the state's ability to deliver satisfactory justice. This provocative volume looks at the flourishing restorative justice movement and considers the relationship between restorative justice and civil society. Genuinely international, it addresses aspects of civil society including schools, families, churches and private workplaces and considers broader issues such as democracy, human rights, access and equity. It presents the ideals of restorative justice so that victims, offenders, their families and communities might have more representation in the justice process.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Mediation, community conferencing and victim impact statements all come under the rubric of restorative justice, an idea whose time has well and truly come. This book is thought-provoking reading for anyone with even a passing interest in alternative dispute resolution.' Law Institute Journal

'The editors of this volume (who have done much to advocate and implement restorative justice arrangements in Australia) are to be commended both for their balanced introduction, and for bringing together a diverse range of contributors including zealots and sceptics.' Law Society Journal

'The issues addressed in Restorative Justice and Civil Society go to the heart of how we think ab out crime, justice, the citizen and the state ... a thought-provoking collection of essays.' Irish Jurist
