The present handbook offers, in a quick reference format, an overview of
key considerations in the implementation of participatory responses to
crime based on a restorative justice approach. Its focus is on a range of
measures and programmes, inspired by restorative justice values, that are
flexible in their adaptation to criminal justice systems and that complement
them while taking into account varying legal, social and cultural circumstances.
It was prepared for the use of criminal justice officials,
non-governmental organizations and community groups who are working
together to improve current responses to crime and conflict in their community.
The materials presented in this handbook are directed toward a
number of different audiences and, therefore, individual users may find
some sections of more relevance and interest than others. (excerpt)
