Debating Restorative Justice

'Debating Law' is a new, exciting series that gives scholarly experts the opportunity to offer contrasting perspectives on significant topics of contemporary, general interest. In this first volume of the series Carolyn Hoyle argues that communities and the state should be more restorative in responding to harms caused by crimes, antisocial behaviour and other incivilities. She supports the exclusive use of restorative justice for many non-serious offences, and favours approaches that, by integrating restorative and retributive philosophies, take restorative practices into the 'deep end' of criminal justice. While acknowledging that restorative justice appears to have much to offer in terms of criminal justice reform, Chris Cunneen offers a different account, contending that the theoretical cogency of restorative ideas is limited by their lack of a coherent analysis of social and political power. He goes on to argue that after several decades of experimentation, restorative justice has not produced significant change in the criminal justice system and that the attempt to establish it as a feasible alternative to dominant practices of criminal justice has failed. This lively and valuable debate will be of great interest to everyone interested in the criminal justice system.

Introduction To Criminal Justice

Author: Alissa Ackerman
ISBN: 9781611636529
Size: 20,69 MB
Format: PDF, ePub

This book offers a new kind of introduction to criminal justice -- a lively, evocative text built around and enlivened by the lived experiences of those who, by choice or not, are heavily involved in the criminal justice system. The authors have included over 30 narratives from victims, offenders, and professionals working within the system. These personal narratives provide real-life examples of how crime and the criminal justice system are experienced. The experiences of real people are often lost in discussions about criminal justice processes and the criminal justice system in general. Texts and teaching too frequently focus exclusively on criminal justice procedures or on macro-level systems. Such conversations lose sight of and de-value the impact of systems on individuals. This textbook seeks to provide the human voice to the topic of criminal justice, while also providing all of the relevant materials to introductory classes. Built around the narratives are all of the traditional materials that instructors need to cover in introduction to criminal justice courses. However, since a good portion of the text will be powerful narratives written by those who have "lived" and "performed" in the criminal justice domain, this book represents an innovative approach that simultaneously challenges instructors to think about their pedagogy in new ways, potentially making their classroom encounters more lively and compelling.

Justice And Authority In Immigration Law

This book provides a new and powerful account of the demands of justice on immigration law and policy. Drawing principally on the work of Adam Smith, Immanuel Kant, and John Rawls, it argues that justice requires states to give priority of admission to the most disadvantaged migrants, and to grant some form of citizenship or non-oppressive status to those migrants who become integrated. It also argues that states must avoid policies of admission and exclusion that can only be implemented through unjust means. It therefore refutes the common misconception that justice places no limits on the discretion of states to control immigration.

My story covers the first fifty years of my life. I divided the story into two parts, the first part telling the reader about my life before going into the military and my life while in the military. In the first part, I am introducing myself to the reader, so that one may see how different personal situations and living in a culture diverse environment helped mold me into the person that I am today. I believe the reader needs to know and comprehend the above so that one can understand my actions in the second and main part of my story. The second part I talk about my experiences after leaving the military, when I decided to accept a job at a major grocery warehouse corporation in the Tacoma, WA area. I talk about how I spoke out against the status quo of racial employment discrimination at this corporation. Additionally, the struggles I encounter filing complaints with the Washington State Human Rights Commission against this corporation, and the barriers I had to overcome before I could have a federal district court trial pertaining to my complaints against this corporation. Lastly, I tell the reader about a shocking experience, which was when a philosophy contained in the Dred Scott's case was applied to the federal district court judge and me, by a federal appellate court reviewing my case. Using my case as an example, my intentions are to show the ruling by the federal appellate court was based on race, and how this court perpetrated a deliberate fabrication of the truth. Furthermore, my case shows that the same federal appellate court did knowingly perpetuate this race based fabrication by making the ruling federal case law within that circuit. This means this untruthful ruling amount to inequality for individuals of color. Now with my story, individuals can see first hand, not all cases are decided according to the law, some are decided by race and deviation from the truth. Based on the above is why I titled my book "Another Cries For Justice."

Transitional Justice And Legacies Of State Violence

As politicians, public bodies and non-Governmental organisations continue to profess an interest in making peace with the past, this highly original study explores the motivation, significance and legacy of ‘making public’ experiences of state violence in Northern Ireland. Based on a synthesis of documentary material with the findings from a series of contemporary interviews, this timely book uncovers the reasoning behind many Republican former detainees’ accounts of state violence and torture. It examines the aims of those who ‘went public’ during the conflict and discusses the meaning they attached to their stories and the various responses to them. It also identifies some of the risks involved in criticising the violence of the British State and illuminates the ways in which ‘truths’ are often contested in Northern Ireland - both during the conflict and in the years which have followed. A unique piece of interdisciplinary work, the study disentangles and evaluates the discourses presented by former detainees and makes an innovative and interesting contribution to knowledge about transitional justice and legacies of state violence. The book is suitable for social science scholars interested in human rights, state violence, criminology and transitional justice, as well as those seeking to understand more about experiences of imprisonment and the legacy of the Northern Ireland conflict.
