About this item

Sexual violence in all its forms, whether contemporary or historical, intra-familial, within institutions and organisations, of a stranger-danger type or during armed conflicts, although frequent and widespread, is a crime for which anecdotal accounts and scholarly reports suggest victims in their great majority do not receive ‘justice’ or redress.

The theory and practice of restorative justice is rapidly developing and offers some well-argued new avenues for dealings with crime in general. It has the potential to be extended to cases of sexual violence and a number of small scale programmes are already underway across the world. This book examines this innovative justice paradigm in more depth in the particular context of sexual trauma and violence in order to establish the empirical realities of restorative justice approaches in cases of sexual crime and considers how such approaches could be developed adequately in the future.
