What does it mean to work restoratively as part of a community-first approach to justice?
Scotland is one of many countries in which Governments and criminal justice agencies are committed to the development of restorative justice. Part of this work must involve supporting our justice colleagues to embed restorative values in their day-to-day work, to change the culture of criminal justice. This workshop explores how restorative values and processes can inform our work with citizens across criminal justice settings, beyond facilitating victim-offender dialogue. We will explore stakeholder participation, repairing harm, building relationships and other restorative values, and consider how the decisions we make in our practice can create a restorative culture across the criminal justice sector.
Dr. Ian D. Marder is Assistant Professor in Criminology at Maynooth University School of Law and Criminology and Deputy Director of the Maynooth Research Centre for Criminology. He works in criminal justice reform, with a particular focus on the development of restorative justice and restorative practices in criminal justice. Current projects relate to penal policy reform, police-community engagement, prison leadership and the development of collaborations between restorative justice and probation services. He coordinates Restorative Justice: Strategies for Change, a five-year project in which partners from ten European jurisdictions, including Scotland, are collaborating to develop restorative justice laws, policies and services.
