“Restorative Justice in Diverse and Unequal Societies.”

Daly, Kathleen
June 4, 2015

Source: (2000) Law in Context. Special issue on Criminal Justice in Diverse Communities. Vol. 17.

Daly explores the value of restorative justice in overcoming the larger injustices based on race. She relies on data from New Zealand and Australia. While accepting the fact that restorative justice can create a more humane system, she points out the continuing ethnocentric definitions of justice and equity. She also explores the difference between the journeys of aboriginal and non-aboriginal offenders through the justice system.
