Actions and consequences: How restorative justice can help victims move on
from the article by Javed Khan: If you were a victim of crime, would you want to meet the offender? What would you say to them? A burglary victim might, for example, want to talk about the inconvenience, the hassle of sorting out the mess and replacing what has been stolen. They could spell out that some things - just objects to an outsider - are completely irreplaceable, and how sentimental value outweighs any financial cost. But we all know that actions have unintended consequences, and burglary isn't just about what's been taken, it's about what's been left behind too.

Lisa Rea: Restorative Justice: Restoring Victims and Communities.
From the article by Lisa Rea and Theo Gavrielides: Victims-driven restorative justice is built on the premise that an offender needs to see the direct impact that his crime had on his victim and on the community, and should be given the opportunity to make amends and seek to provide a form of reparation to those he injured. Through the voluntary participation of both the victim and the offender engaged in an honest and constructive dialogue (i.e. mediation, family group conferencing, circles, etc.) facilitated by trained professionals, the participants benefit from the information exchange.

This paper will consider restorative justice, crime and responses to crime, especially from the point of view of the victim, with reference to recommendations of the council of Europe and the United Nations, with comments on the implementation of restorative measures in England and Wales.
