Gavrielides, T. (2019). Collapsing the criminal labeLs of domestic violence: A social and restorative justice approach, London: RJ4All Publications.

 

Domestic violence is a pervasive problem that has plagued most societies throughout history and the world; affecting women, men, boys and girls alike, in a myriad of different ways. Typically, how the issue is conceptualised and addressed, hinges greatly on cultural norms, formal and informal practices of conflict resolution and legal frameworks.

 

This ebook addresses the sensitive and controversial topic of using restorative justice in cases of domestic violence. Through an evidence-based manner, it purports to bring forward new insights and reflections acquired through recent fieldwork with victims, offenders and restorative justice practitioners. Most importantly, it makes firm assertions while recognising the need for caution and without disregarding potential opposing arguments.
