Restorative justice has emerged from communities and through the passion of
dedicated practitioners, victims and offenders. The future is uncertain as
governments take interest in a top down and controlled version of this community led
ethos. The paper identifies three opportunities for restorative justice, alerting the
restorative justice movement that if it does not restore the damages caused by its own
power-interest battles, it will soon be diminished. (Author’s abstract)
