The Sustainability of Restorative Justice, Hardback Book

The Sustainability of Restorative Justice Hardback

Part of the Advances in Sustainability and Environmental Justice series


There is a growing acknowledgment amongst professionals and academics that we need to develop new responses to crime.

This book provides an insight into the first introduction of restorative justice to the criminal justice system in the Republic of Ireland.

By analysing six case studies of restorative conferencing events, the authors aim to address the salient question of how restorative conferencing for young offenders can facilitate an exchange process whereby forms of reparation and social regulation may be achieved. The restorative justice process has much to offer, and the authors argue that this concept, particularly as it centres on the greater use of non custodial sentences, will not only bring about changes in the law but also have significant implications for social regulation.
