This book sets out to translate theory and fine words into mainstream practice. It will be of interest to a wide range of prison and RJ practitioners as well as other people such as judges, magistrates, police officers and probation officers who deal with crime prevention, reparation, rehabilitation and reintegration. It looks at the huge, untapped potential for implementing restorative approaches in prison and provides a model for organizational and cultural change –‘building a restorative community within prison walls’ – and makes suggestions about everyday functions such as sentence planning, discipline, violence reduction and complaints.
