Description

This up-to-date resource on restorative justice provides scholars, practitioners, students and policymakers from around the world with a comprehensive and authoritative review of original research in new and contested areas.

Bringing together contributors from across a range of jurisdictions, disciplines and legal traditions, this edited collection provides a concise but critical review of existing theory and practice in restorative justice. Authors identify key developments, theoretical arguments and new empirical evidence, evaluating their merits and demerits, before turning the reader’s attention to further concerns informing and improving the future of restorative justice. Divided into four parts, the handbook includes papers written by leading scholars on: new theory, empirical evidence of implementation, critiques and the future of restorative justice.

This companion is essential reading for scholars of restorative justice, criminology, social theory, psychology, law, human rights and criminal justice, as well as researchers, policymakers, practitioners and campaigners from around the world.

Reviews

'This international Handbook grounds itself in the present and past in order to look to the future. It sets for itself an important but challenging goal: to reflect the state of restorative justice in the early 21st century, including not only developments in theory and practice, but also its essential debates and challenges. This is an important collection for anyone who wants to understand and grapple with 21st century restorative justice.'

Howard Zehr, Eastern Mennonite University, USA

'This book is perhaps the most comprehensive and certainly the most up-to-date collection on restorative justice. It goes to some topics rarely addressed in earlier volumes … and embraces a wider range of critiques of restorative justice than most volumes on the subject … Furthermore, in its geographical coverage, this international Handbook is much broader than older collections … We are grateful to Theo Gavrielides for bringing so many voices into the conversation. Many inspiring restorative justice leaders in the past have mobilized convening power toward projects of listening, but none more widely nor in more diverse ways than Theo Gavrielides in recent years.'

John Braithwaite, Australian National University

'A decade after the first two "Handbooks of Restorative Justice", this successor comes timely. It is an update of developments in ideas and current debates, and of a great part of the relevant literature. A new generation of authors is emerging. Restorative justice researchers, advocates and critics should have it.'

Lode Walgrave, University of Leuven, Belgium
