The International Journal of Restorative Justice

IJRJ features articles about restorative justice. Each issue starts with an ‘Editorial’ by a leading restorative justice expert, followed by academic peer-reviewed articles concerning original and current research on theoretical, practice and policy developments. In addition, the journal contains ‘Notes from the Field’, in which experts representative of their respective fields and countries debate practices, models or recent innovations. Then there are ‘Conversations’ with prominent  figures known globally for their contributions to the field. Finally, a stimulating book review section examines the most recent or important restorative justice publications.

The journal’s aim is to contribute to the development of restorative justice by discussing its diverse, challenging and innovative facets, as well as to encourage fruitful discussions and debates. The International Journal of Restorative Justice will appeal to academics and researchers, to practitioners and policy-makers, and to those who want to keep up to date with the rapid changes in the field of restorative justice.
