An analysis of the limits of the criminal justice system and the need for restorative justice in the contentious area of sexual crime 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 here is to determine whether it is possible to reconcile two methods of justice delivery in the context of sexual crime in order to create a hybrid system of justice that protects and responds to the rights and needs of victims and offenders.||Funding Details:||European Commission||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Taylor and Francis||Journal:||Contemporary Justice Review||Volume:||19||Issue:||1||Start page:||43||End page:||68||Copyright (published version):||2016 Taylor and Francis||Keywords:||Restorative justice; Sexual crime; Criminal justice; Victim survivors; Sexual offenders; Hybrid system of justice||DOI:||10.1080/10282580.2015.1101689||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
