“The restorative justice and probation movements: Two trains running.”

Immarigeon, Russ
June 4, 2015

Source: (1999) Community Corrections Report 7 (November/December): 5-6, 12.

In this article, Immarigeon aims to place restorative justice in context with other, contemporaneous movements that have attempted to affect the criminal justice system, in particular the development of probation and parole. He does this largely by reporting on two conferences and some of the key ideas, history, and practices of each movement as highlighted through the conferences: one conference focused on restorative justice; and the other conference focused on probation and parole. Immarigeon sees restorative justice and probation/parole as having some overlap but also some conflicts; hence, he urges explicit discussion and debate among advocates of each.
