Van Ness, D. and Strong, K. Restoring Justice, 4th edition
Hassine, V. Life Without Parole, 4th edition
course introduces the theory and practice of resolving interpersonal
and group conflict through nonviolent means. Religious, humanist,
and feminist peacemaking traditions are among the theoretical
perspectives addressed. Critical criminology, as it identifies problems
in conventional criminal justice problem solving, is stressed.
Arbitration,mediation, conflict intervention, and community-based
initiatives for resolving disputes are studied.
It considers ways in which employees of the criminal justice system
can use the principles of restorative justice in their work.
There are so many wonderful web resources related to restorative justice,
it can be overwhelming! On the other hand,I hope that
visiting these links will encourage further searching.....]
