This volume examines the relationship between restorative justice and civil society, presenting debates and exploring ideas about who should ‘control’ restorative justice, the state or civil society, thus, about the ways restorative justice interrelates with both civil society and the authority of the state. Genuinely international in its approach, the book addresses aspects of civil society including schools, families, churches and private workplaces, social movements such as the women’s movement, victims of crime and indigenous groups. It also considers broader theoretical and conceptual issues such as democracy, human rights, access and equity.
