This book outlines the current experimentation with approaches to restorative justice for adult offenders represents a compelling new direction in the criminal justice system. The value and challenges of restorative justice for adult offenders, victims and communities is thoroughly examined. The discussion is situated within current debate, available research, and the international literature. In canvassing the structure, content and delivery of key Australian and New Zealand restorative justice programs for adult offenders, the distinguished authors offer critical analysis of the emergence and impact of program developments for restorative justice practitioners, criminal justice professionals, and the criminal justice system. This collection brings together stimulating and informed articles by experienced practitioners, leading academics and new researchers in the field. It is essential reading not only for restorative justice professionals (including police, magistrates, lawyers, program managers, convenors and facilitators) but for policy-makers, criminal justice researchers, and students - all of whom will gain valuable insight into emerging restorative justice practice for adult offenders, which offers a real and persuasive alternative to the adversarial justice system.
