Repair or Revenge

Victims and Restorative Justice

Heather Strang

  • Examines for the first time the victim's experience of restorative justice in comparison with the experience of victims whose cases were treated in the courts in the usual way
  • Shifts the focus of discussion from the effectiveness of restorative justice in reducing reoffending to whether it offers the victims of crime advantages over traditional court-centred justice
