In two or three decades, restorative justice has become all over the world a busy field of
experimentation, an important domain of empirical and theoretical research and of socioethical
reflection, as well as a crucial theme in the debates on juvenile justice and criminal
justice reform. Very remarkable is the extent to which restorative justice thinking appears to
be increasingly influencing the direction of criminal justice policy-making at almost every
level: international,1 governmental (see further), and also subgovernmental within a range of
criminal agencies, including the police, probation service and prison service.
In this paper we will try and define the concept (1), explain where it does come from (2), as
well as when (3) and how (4) it is implemented in England and Wales. Author’s abstract.
