CFP: Locating Restorative Justice within Criminal Justice: Challenges in Theory and Practice

Conference hosted by the Durham Law School, Centre for Criminal Law and Criminal Justice. 2nd-3rd May 2013


Call for Papers


Restorative approaches have emerged as important innovations to criminal offending and are exerting a strong influence in many criminal justice systems. The influence of restorative justice is developing as policymakers have become concerned about the capacity of the traditional criminal system to deliver participatory processes and fair outcomes that are capable of benefiting victims, offenders and society at large.


This conference will examine the role of restorative justice within criminal justice and considers the intersection between theory and the practical delivery of justice. It will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to explore the challenges which lie ahead as restorative justice assumes a more central role in criminal justice policymaking.



Proposals for papers should be sent either to Jonathan Doak ( or to David O’Mahony ( before Friday, 15th March 2013. Proposals should be no longer than 150 words.


There is no charge for conference speakers. Places are limited.
