In this paper Zandbergen, reviewing a Dutch diversion project for juveniles, maintains that it constitutes an application of Braithwaite’s reintegrative shaming theory. Her argument consists of a description of this Dutch diversion project, a summary of reintegrative shaming, and a discussion of shame and guilt. Preliminary research findings on this project are also included.
