In New Zealand, when it was became apparent that the adoption of a restorative focus in the adult jurisdiction could constitute major new public policy, the NZ Ministry of Justice requested input on the wide range of views that had to be considered on this issue. This paper endeavoured to set out the main options that the ministry identified as a result of its investigations (without reaching a conclusion), so that those who wished to participate in the consultation knew the issues on which the ministry was seeking input.
