“This study will discuss whether these concepts and their possible interconnections can help us to understand the impact of restorative justice, and if so, how. Although any analysis of restorative justice should be at least as much about the victim as about the offender, the current article intends to focus mostly its impact on wrongdoers. Hence, it necessarily reflects only on some issues within restorative justice.” (abstract)
