“This timely collection enriches human rights and restorative justice worldwide.”

“Rights & Restoration demonstrates that restorative processes are effective in producing a just response, repairing harm to victims, holding offenders accountable, and teaching values while recognizing the importance of relationships.”
~ Daniel Van Ness, Executive Director of the Centre for Justice and Reconciliation, Prison Fellowship International, and Adjunct Professor at Pepperdine University
“The relationship between restorative justice and human rights has long been ignored by policy and practice, and this book bridges this gap without any geographical limitations.”
~ Brenda Morrison, Co-Director Centre for Restorative Justice, Simon Fraser University
Rights & Restoration within Youth Justice unites the principles and practices of human rights and restorative justice. Leading international experts challenge current thinking on evidence-based youth justice policy. Through international case studies, a framework emerges for connecting human rights and restorative justice approaches to criminal justice policy and practice.
This book is written by leading scholars in the fields of restorative justice, human rights, youth justice and policy and criminal justice. The project is carried out under the auspices of Independent Academic Research Studies (IARS).
