“This chapter explores the role of restorative justice in prisons, and the applicability of ‘best practise’ restorative justice principles and practices within an institutional setting. It also examines the implications of this model for prisoner family/whanau restoration, and victim-offender reconciliation. The paper concludes with a discussion on the implications of this model for the wider correctional system.” (Abstract)
