On the human limits of Restorative Justice…

Rachel from North London makes a passionate advocacy of Restorative Justice, arguing that it “is much more like the way humans naturally resolve their differences and communicate with each other”. She praises work being done in Northern Ireland but believes that in some specific cases, like where there is no genuine remorse, it just won’t work. She cites the example of her own disturbing case at length. H/T to the ‘always-on’ CS!

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
