Making restorative justice work for women who have offended

The RJC has published Making restorative justice work for women who have offended, a new research report that sets out a series of recommendations for practitioners and policy makers on how to improve female offenders’ access to and experiences of restorative justice.

Written by Dr Linnéa Österman and Dr Isla Masson and funded by Barrow Cadbury Trust, the report is based on interviews with restorative justice practitioners who have experience of working with female offenders and with women who have themselves gone through a restorative justice process. It addresses a major gap in our research and knowledge regarding female offenders and restorative justice.
