The primary aim of this book is to examine the impact restorative justice has made on the youth justice framework in the UK over the past ten years so as to determine whether the current practice aspires to the international standard of restorative justice. This involves examining the development of restorative justice in other jurisdictions such as Canada and New Zealand so as to compare and contrast the impact of the development and practice of restorative justice in managing youth offending. A primary focus will be to use the conceptual foundations of restorative justice in addition to the development of restorative justice practice in other jurisdictions to inform the analysis of the UK’s attempts to incorporate restorative justice within the criminal justice system.
