The Howard League Commission on English Prisons Today (Commission) was established in May of 2007 to explore various issues related to prisons and prisoners including the appropriate use of prisons and best use of community sanctions. To this end, the Commission created a Restorative Justice Working Group. In this article, Dr. Carolyn Hoyle, chair of the working group, describes the work of the Commission related to restorative justice and asks several questions seeking feedback from practitioners around the world.
