Anthony Pemberton
June 4, 2015

Although restorative justice is often presented as a victim oriented reform of criminal justice procedures, there is a relative dearth of research and theory into the experiences of victims within restorative justice.Recently Heather Strang,Lawrence Sherman and their associates(2003,2004,2006)started to develop theory and research that attempts to fill this relative void.This article is an attempt to contribute to the further understanding of the effects of restorative justice conferencing on victims.
Taking Strang and Sherman’s work as a starting point, it discusses various issues relating to research and theory of victims within restorative justice
