In this document Tim Newell presents a summary report on the Restorative Justice in Prisons Project. This project was carried out from October 2001 to March 2002. It was based in the Thames Valley Partnership and sponsored by the Prisoner Administration Group at the Prison Service Headquarters. His report covers an introduction to restorative justice in general (especially in relation to other approaches to criminal justice and custodial sentencing of offenders), a description of a restorative approach to prisons themselves, and specific conclusions and recommendations with respect to the project and to restorative justice in prisons.
