Abstract

Moving forward with restorative justice in Scotland

This deliberative conference built on the learning from the Scottish Universities Insight Institute-funded programme of dialogues on Restorative Justice in Scotland - learning from others held earlier this year. The aim of the conference was to move on to generate propositions for the development of RJ practice and policy in Scotland. There was an opportunity to discuss the Scottish Government’s statutory guidance on access and referral of victims to restorative justice, publication of which is anticipated ahead of the meeting. 
Consultants present included Ivo Aertsen (K.U. University Leuven, Belgium and author of Institutionalising Restorative Justice), Tim Chapman (chair, European Forum on Restorative Justice), Professor Joanna Shapland (University of Sheffield and convenor, Restorative Justice Forum Scotland) and Estelle Zinsstag (editor of Restorative Justice: an International Journal).
