Restorative and Community Justice: What Is It, What It Involves and Where Is It Going

Webster, Ken
June 4, 2015

Source: (2001) Paper presented at the Restorative and Community Justice: Inspiring the Future conference, held in Winchester, England, 28-31 March.

Mike Ledwidge (Surrey Police Service) and Ken Webster are both national trainers in restorative conferencing. Their training expertise extends from restorative conferencing to include intimate knowledge of victim-offender mediation, family group conferencing, and community conferencing. Against this background Ledwidge and Webster examine the nature and processes, as well as the future, of restorative and community justice. They present depictions of a continuum of offending behavior and appropriate restorative interventions, of psychological routes for offenders and victims in restorative processes, and key elements and processes of various restorative intervention models.
