The author asks the question “is there a place for restorative justice as an appropriate or additional pathway for violent crimes against women and children?” and she answers it with a qualified yes. She goes on to explain in brief what restorative justice is, particularly as it relates to mediation in violent crimes. She then summarizes the debate about the potential benefits and hazards of mediation in cases of violent crime.
