Sexual Violence Research Initiative: Restorative justice
from the website:
Across the world, only a tiny proportion of survivors/victims of sexual violence ever see their rapist punished. There is increasing awareness that the requirements of legal proceedings are often in conflict with the needs of sexual violence survivors/victims.
Experiences of the adversarial court processes post-sexual violence are often traumatic, requiring the survivor/victim to confront their assailant, to defend their case and re-live the experience.
Restorative justice aims to repair harm done to a survivor/victim of sexual violence, (and where appropriate to their families/communities) through offender acceptance of responsibility, reparations and rehabilitation, whether as a supplementary process, or an alternative, to conventional court proceedings.
This section of the site provides you with resources and publications related to restorative justice and sexual violence.
Take a look at their resources.
