Restorative Justice and Family Violence by Heather Strang
Book DescriptionThis 2002 book addresses one of the most controversial topics in restorative justice: its potential for dealing with conflicts within families. Most restorative justice programs specifically exclude family violence as an appropriate offence to be dealt with this way. This book focuses on the issues in family violence that may warrant special caution about restorative justice, in particular, feminist and indigenous concerns. At the same time it looks for ways of designing a place for restorative interventions that respond to these concerns. Further, it asks whether there are ways that restorative processes can contribute to reducing and preventing family violence, to healing its survivors and to confronting the wellsprings of this violence. The book discusses the shortcomings of the present criminal justice response to family violence. It suggests that these shortcomings require us to explore other ways of addressing this apparently intractable problem.

Drawing on a five-year study of the impact of a restorative justice programme on victims of property and violent crime, Strang presents evidence to show that the restorative alternative of conferencing more often than court-based solutions has the capacity to satisfy victims' expectations of delivering restoration.
