Conservative think tank in Britain calls for restorative justice act
From Restorative Justice Consortium E-Newsletter for April 2009: A leading Conservative think-tank, set up by former Party leader Ian Duncan-Smith, has called for an expansion of Restorative Justice conferencing, training of police in restorative disposals, a national Restorative Justice agency and a Restorative Justice Act.
In two recent publications, the
Centre for Social Justice has backed Restorative Justice as core
way in which both policing and prisons should be reformed. Political
insiders indicate that the publications will be influential in shaping
Conservative Party policy in any upcoming election.
