Thursday 24th May 2012, 18:00 - 19:45

Heartspace / Pennine Lecture Theatre

Main Atrium, City Campus, Sheffield Hallam University

Dennis Wong


Restorative justice is a new approach toward understanding and handling crime. Practices based on restorative justice principles have rapidly been gaining popularity since the 1980s. Evidence suggests that restorative processes, which empower crime victims, offenders, and communities to take an active part in resolving the impact of crime, increase public trust in the justice system and may reduce re-offending behaviour.  

The Community Justice Portal 9th Annual Public Lecture by Dr. Dennis Sing-wing Wong provides an overview of how the juvenile justice systems operate and discusses evolution of restorative justice in Hong Kong and China.  The lecture offers a window into the specific developments of a range of restorative practices within China and argues that the Chinese informal model of social control has similarities with the model of restorative justice.  The article discusses a detailed analysis of the role of restorative justice at different stages within the Chinese juvenile justice process, and offers cautionary notes about the rapid expansion of restorative justice.
