The July 2000 issue of the Canadian Journal of Criminology consists of a special issue oriented around this theme: the administration of criminal justice demands a fuller involvement of communities. This paper provides concluding remarks on the six papers in the issue, papers which were presented along with others at a September 1999 conference in Saskatoon on the same theme. Healy’s remarks (based on the content of the papers) cover restorative justice, reintegrative shaming, mercy and institutional structures, legislative reform and sentencing, the intersection of politics and public servants, and the Canadian Supreme Court’s ruling on alternative sentencing in relation to aboriginal offenders.
