Source: (1998) Draft paper for Seminar on Restorative Justice, Institute of Criminology, University of Sydney Law School.

Daly outlines two misconceptions she sees in the “storyâ€? of restorative justice. These are a restrictions are (1) a restricted history and (2) the retributive-restorative oppositions. She gives a brief summary of social movements that led to the development of restorative justice as well as a brief outline of major theories that have informed the thinking. She also argues for a mixing of the restorative and the retributive justice models.
