Restorative Justice and the Secure Estate: Alternatives for Young People in Custody Reviews
This is an excellent contribution to the relatively sparse research that exists on the application of restorative justice in custodial settings. While it focusses primarily on young people in custody, the findings apply equally well across many settings. While limited by the challenges of limited data sets, Gavrielides' contribution will continue to advance both the philosophical and practical application of restorative justice as well as stimulating much needed research in this field.
Dr. Gavrielides is one of the leading European experts on restorative justice. His work is highly respected and it is always a pleasure to keep abreast with his efforts in the area. This 84 page monograph is no exception. Based on a restorative justice project involving four European countries, the monograph provides a highly accessible and enlivened; yet balanced, examination of restorative justice and its compatibility within "the practice and theory of imprisonment". For anyone serious about learning about the possible application of restorative justice principles within a broader empirical context, this little monograph is worth adding to the growing collection of RJ literature.
