Restorative justice: A new paradigm?
MetadataShow full item record
This paper examines the merits or otherwise of restorative justice within criminal justice systems. The overpopulation of prisons remains a major global issue along with increasing rates of recidivism. In stark contrast to the punitive aims of traditional retributive justice systems that enforce a regime of punishment for offenders, the restorative justice approach promotes the repair of harm caused by an offence. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of restorative justice in addition to examining potential barriers to its widespread application.**I am indebted to Michael King for his valuable suggestions in the preparation of this paper.
