Book Description

Over the last ten years, the debate on the use of restorative justice in the secure estate started to gather momentum. Strong reservations from stakeholders in the fields of policy, academia and practice caused some intense questioning even among proponents of restorative justice. The commitment of practitioners kept the debate alive, and this perseverance seems to have paid off as the new UK government has expressed its keen interest in restorative justice.

This report focuses on the use of restorative justice with young people in
custody, and aims to achieve three objectives. Firstly, to provide an up-to-date
descriptive account of restorative practices within the secure estate. This account looks at issues of classification, definition and understanding. Secondly, to present a critical overview of existing restorative practices with the objective of establishing the extent to which they influence the regimes and programmes of the secure estate. A cost-benefit analysis of restorative justice is also attempted. Thirdly, to look at the potential, barrier and enablers of a restorative justice strategy in the secure estate.

Based on qualitative data from young people, practitioners, policy makers,
victims, offenders and academics, the paper posits evidence-based
recommendations for policy and strategy analysts, researchers and practitioners at a critical point in time for the restorative justice movement.
