Critical Restorative Justice

Edited by: Ivo Aertsen, Brunilda Pali

Theories and practices of justice do not meet the socio-political challenges of our times. For those theorists attempting to develop an alternative to the criminal justice system, restorative justice has provided an alternative horizon. Doing justice in the restorative justice approach means actually meeting people, understanding, and recognizing their vulnerability through participatory and deliberative forums and practices. The aim of this collection is to bridge the distance between restorative justice and the critical theory tradition. On the one hand, it takes into account the limits of restorative justice as they have been articulated-or can be articulated-through critical social theory, and, on the other hand, it emphasizes the ground breaking potential that restorative justice can bring to this tradition as a way to address crimes, conflicts, and injustices, and to pursue justice.
