Surveying restorative justice in New Zealand, Jantzi begins with an overview of key elements in the definition of restorative justice, and then turns to a historical sketch of this movement in New Zealand. Against this background, Jantzi presents typologies of alternative justice programs in New Zealand with respect to their philosophical orientations, structure, and practice. This leads to analysis of issues concerning the current state and future directions of restorative justice in New Zealand. Jantzi completes his paper with a discussion of restorative justice and participatory democracy.
