Use of Restorative Approaches in Sentencing

In responding to the recent disturbances much emphasis is, rightly, being placed on bringing the perpetrators to justice. The question is: what kind of justice?

 

Many of the offences we have witnessed seem to us at Catch22 to lend themselves to restorative approaches, where perpetrators are brought face to face with victims to hear first hand about the impact of their offences, face up to the consequences of their actions, and make reparation.

 

As the courts mete out justice in the days and weeks ahead, we hope that these approaches feature strongly.
