Does Punishment Have a Place in Restorative Justice?

Daly, Kathleen
June 4, 2015

Source: (1999) Paper presented to the Australia and New Zealand Society of Criminology Annual Conference, Perth, 28-30 September 1999.

This paper presents preliminary findings from the South Australia Juvenile Justice Research on Conferencing Project. The author urges colleagues to rethink the oppositional contrast between restorative justice and retributive justice. Her experience from observing family or diversionary conferences in Australia is that routine practices do not reflect a model of strong contrasts.
