Arguing that traditional criminal justice systems should be transformed into restorative justice systems, Löschnig-Gspandl applies restorative justice to corporate crime. She defines the nature of corporate crime, including discussions of corporations as offenders and corporations as victims. Corporate crime should be dealt with in restorative ways. She construes restorative justice primarily in terms of processes and practices such as compensation orders and alternative dispute resolution. She even explores potential applications of victim-offender mediation with respect to corporate crime. In her scheme restitution is in itself an important, comprehensive purpose of criminal law.
