The Community Justice Portal 12th Annual Public Lecture will be given by Jon Collins, CEO of the Restorative Justice Council.
Criminal justice in the new parliament – what role for restorative justice?
This lecture will explore the prospects for restorative justice following the May 2015 general election, within the context of recent and anticipated reforms of the criminal justice system. The lecture will summarise recent changes to the criminal justice system thematically, with a particular focus on restorative justice. This, and an analysis of the general election manifestos, will form the basis of an assessment of the expected future direction of criminal justice policy under the new government and the role that restorative justice is likely to play. Situated within a broader analysis of criminal justice reform, the lecture will explore opportunities for restorative justice to be better integrated into the justice system and examine the barriers to moving a restorative approach from the margins into the mainstream.
