This newsletter contains several articles pertaining to criminal justice issues in New Zealand. The article on restorative justice clarifies the role of the New Zealand Department of Justice in the evaluation of restorative justice, with an emphasis on the responsibilities, constraints, and objectives which make its role in such initiatives different from that of community or non-governmental institutions. Another article summarizes research conducted by a Department of Justice employee into victim-offender mediation and reparation projects in Great Britain. The final article outlines the features and uses of a new model developed by the Department of Justice to forecast prison population figures.
