“The aim is to take a close look at the interaction between victims and restorative justice; the objective is to consider whether this interaction is developing in line with the principles of restorative justice or whether the concerns raised above by Elias (1993) still have relevance to the ways in which victims are represented and included within a seemingly more victim-orientated criminal justice system.” (excerpt)
