This paper of the Ministry of Justice provides a framework for the development of New Zealand’s restorative justice process. This paper explores the main options for the adoption of a restorative focus in the adult jurisdiction. Four major questions are addressed: To what extent are the objectives of restorative justice consistent with each other? What is the evidence of restorative justice achieving those objectives? In what ways might restorative justice enhance the cultural responsiveness of the criminal justice system? What are the cost implication of any such approach? s is presented.
