Item description for Restorative Justice Theory and Practice: Addressing the Discrepancy (European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control Publication Series) by Theo Gavrielides...

A study examines the harmful gap between the theory of restorative justice (RJ) and its application in programs in the U.S., Europe, and elsewhere. Data were obtained from four surveys of restorative justice practitioners, using a combination of qualitative methodologies, including questionnaire responses, interviews and focus groups.

Restorative justice programs strive to restore peace after a crime has been committed by involving victims, offenders and community representatives in dialogue and mediation. Previous studies reviewed by Dr. Gavrielides have credited RJ programs with such benefits as lower recidivism, and higher levels of satisfaction with outcomes among victims, offenders and community representatives, compared to the traditional criminal justice system. However, the author s seven-year research program uncovered a pervasive gap between restorative justice principles and current RJ program operations. This gap is blamed for widespread difficulties such as insufficient funding for RJ programs, inadequate training and accreditation of RJ practitioners, lack of faith and commitment among staff, and a tendency for RJ programs over time to become increasingly similar to the standard criminal justice system. Dr. Gavrielides warns that if these problems are not corrected, RJ s original values and benefits may never be realized.
