A collection of contributions on the theme of restorative and ‘relational’ justice.
Praise for Relational Justice
‘Everyone agrees that we must deal better with the needs of victims and at the same time respect the rights of offenders. The concept of Relational Justice shows great promise in contributing to this important debate.’ (Mary Tuck CBE, Chair of Victim Support)
‘The idea of Relational Justice brings to the administration of criminal justice new priorities: the need to treat all those who are involved in its process with courtesy, consideration and respect. Victims of crime have particular need for such treatment.’ (Baroness Faithfull OBE)
‘By bringing a renewed emphasis on the human dimension and on the relationships affected by crime, I believe this book will give new hope to all of us who work closely with people caught up in the consequences of crime.’ (Rt Rev Robert Hardy, Bishop of Lincoln and Bishop to Prisons)
‘We are supporting the development of Relational Justice prison audits into viable operational procedures because we believe they have the potential to transform the way a prison is organised.’ (John Pearce, Area Director, Scottish Prison Service)
