Introducing Restorative Justice: Re-Visioning Responses to Wrongdoing
Calhoun, Avery
Prevention Researcher, v20 n1 p3-6 2013
Learning about restorative justice involves examining conventional thinking about crime (or wrongdoing generally), values in relation to how people associated with wrongdoing are treated, and best responses when a wrongdoing occurs. In this introductory article, the author highlights key developments in the restorative movement and main distinctions between the conventional and restorative justice approaches. She describes what restorative justice interventions involve and considers claims about effectiveness. In the article's conclusion she notes ongoing tensions and recent innovations in the field. (Contains 2 footnotes.)
