Hadar Dancig-Rosenberg and Tali Gal (Bar-Ilan University - Faculty of Law and School of Criminology, University of Haifa) has posted Restorative Criminal Justice (Cardozo Law Review, Forthcoming) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
This Essay develops a model that integrates restorative justice within the conventional punitive system of criminal responsibility and punishment. Contrary to the conventional wisdom, we demonstrate that restorative justice should form a synergy with retributivism, deterrence, incapacitation, and other punitive goals of criminal law. We show how this synergy can be formed, illustrate its operation and identify its potential contribution to social welfare.
