Victims of crime do not benefit directly from criminal justice policies that diminish the rights of offenders and increase their penalties. Victims of Crimes and Community Justice lays bare the assumptions about victims and offenders that restrict efficient policy-making and proposes a more balanced approach that takes into account both the needs of the victim and the responsibilities of the offender. Brian Williams evaluates proposed solutions, including restorative justice and informal community justice, and draws on evidence and experiences from the UK and around the world to investigate which measures have proved effective and how criminal justice policies might be redressed. (Publisher’s abstract).
