Human rights and restorative justice are rarely brought under the same spotlight despite their normative similarities. In fact, this gap becomes even more apparent when put in the context of policy and practice internationally. Firstly, there is a developing gap between public perception and evidence-based depiction of crime. Secondly, scholarly debates are rarely reflected in criminal justice policy and legislation. This failure has an impact on recidivism, the spiralling costs of penal interventions, but most importantly on how we view our interpersonal and intercommunal relationships.

  • “This is an important and timely collection on a topic that has been neglected by both the human rights and restorative justice movements. It traverses a great diversity of specific and crucial issues”.

    Prof. John Braithwaite, Australian National University

     

    “This book is an important contribution to both restorative justice and human rights literature. It develops a conceptual understanding of both that is able to withstand the tensions between the personal (relationships) and the abstract (norms). This collection demonstrates that restorative processes can be effective in producing a just response, repairing harm to victims, holding offenders accountable, and teaching values while recognizing the importance of relationships”.

    Prof. Daniel Van Ness, Executive Director of the Centre for Justice and Reconciliation, Prison Fellowship International, Adjunct Professor at Pepperdine University
