Restorative Justice in Legal Systems, Education and the Community: Reflections on What Works, Where We Can Grow and What's Next

Sandra Pavelka

Restorative justice, realized in states and communities across the world, is viewed as an innovative framework and growing global social movement, providing a foundation for fairness and accountability in laws, policies and practices. Its application is integrated in legal systems, educational settings and the workplace, among others.

A wide range of expert voices in the restorative justice field come together in this book culminating in an insightful and critical assessment of restorative justice. With authors from around the globe, the international application of restorative justice is evidenced with case studies and examples of the impact of restorative practices and various models. Relational practice, its implementation, its effects and its potential to grow is at the heart of each of the chapters, thoughtfully arranged to guide the reader through the journey of restorative justice in education, to legal systems, youth offender programmes and the communities for whom restorative justice is integral.
