Source: (2004) Paper presented to the Global Social Work Conference.October 2004.

In this paper I will explore briefly the forces that are leading to interest in Restorative Justice
in a number of countries where the adversarial justice system has been the norm. I will
consider the contribution that Restorative Justice could make to developing community
capacity and explore questions arising from the conceptualisation of communities by
restorative justice theoreticians. Finally I will touch on the implications for social work of a
restorative justice model. (excerpt)
