La justice restaurative : le tournant institutionnel
Restorative Justice: The Institutional Turn

Restorative Justice: The Institutional Turn

Dirigé par Andrei Poama

Restorative justice is becoming part of our penal institutions, both in Europe and the United States. The authors of this collective issue see this as a desirable trend and claim that more work needs to be done in identifying the political, legal and moral reasons for punishing in a restorative way. We argue that these reasons are at least twofold. First, restorative justice is well placed when it comes to promoting important normative goods, such as freedom or democracy. Second, restorative programs are practically efficient and psychologically in tune with our well considered moral judgments in penal matters. This collective issue is aimed at academics, criminal justice practitioners, and at all the lay citizens who are interested in questions of punishment.
