|Title:||Restorative Justice, Sexual VIolence and the Criminal Justice System||Authors:||Keenan, Marie; Joyce-Wojtas, Niamh||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/12872||Date:||Oct-2013||Online since:||2022-05-09T10:47:55Z||Abstract:||In addition to the more conventional approaches of the criminal justice system, this article suggests that there is a need for restorative justice as another method of addressing sexual crime. In support of this view, the present article explores the possibility of a hybrid justice system based on a complementary relationship between restorative justice and the criminal justice system. An analysis of the limits of the criminal justice system and the need for restorative justice in the contentious area of sexual violence will be followed by a detailed examination of key justice considerations when trying to marry both criminal justice and restorative justice perspectives. Such considerations include the meaning of justice, legislation, sentencing principles, due process, victims’ rights and the location of restorative justice within/alongside/outside the criminal justice system. The aim of this article is to determine whether it is possible to reconcile two seemingly juxtaposed methods of justice delivery in the context of sexual violence in order to create a hybrid system of justice that best protects and responds to the rights and needs of victims and offenders.||Funding Details:||European Commission||Funding Details:||Daphne III||Type of material:||Working Paper||Publisher:||UCD School of Applied Social Science||Series/Report no.:||UCD School of Applied Social Science Working Paper Series 2013; WP33||Keywords:||Restorative justice; Sexual violence; Criminal justice||Other versions:||https://www.ucd.ie/socialpolicyworkjustice/research/publications/workingpaperseries/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Not peer reviewed||ISSN:||1478-3703||This item is made available under a Creative Commons License:||https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/ie/|
