Abstract

Much of the appeal of restorative justice (RJ) is that it encompasses the needs of either the people or person harmed, as well as the person displaying the offending behaviour. Evidence shows this method can have a useful impact on reducing reoffending while giving victims a sense of having their voices heard within the justice system.
