Samenvatting

Restorative Justice for Domestic Violence Victims uses a rich and detailed set of interviews and complementary survey data to make a strong case for introducing restorative justice principles into the existing menu of services for victims of domestic violence. Guided primarily by concerns of victim safety, domestic violence theorists and practitioners have been wary of introducing restorative justice principled programs in the domestic violence arena. While remaining cognizant of safety concerns, Marilyn Fernandez weaves together the theories, concepts, and research in the restorative justice and domestic violence traditions and uses the voices of domestic violence victims to make a case for restorative justice programs. In the process, Fernandez helps readers, academicians, students, and practitioners, understand the complex nature of domestic violence and the lives of its victims.

Recensie(s)

Marilyn Fernandez does an exceptionally good job of navigating the very controversial landscape of the interface between restorative justice and family violence. Restorative Justice for Domestic Violence Victims: A Supplemental Approach to Their Hungerfor Healing is very timely and compelling, particularly since it represents an empirical approach to the topic that is grounded in the actual stories of a diverse range of survivors. Fernandez is appropriately cautious and offers very clear guidelinesthat outline core principles that cannot be compromised in a restorative justice based domestic violence program. Neither a quick fix nor a one-size-fits-all approach is put forth. Rather, a range of options that can supplement the court process and support survivor's hunger for healing is offered. This is a must read for all in the restorative justice and domestic violence fields.. -- Mark Umbreit, Center for Restorative Justice & Peacemaking at University of Minnesota Restorative Justice for Domestic Violence Victims takes the reader on an important journey through the lives of battered women. Guided by their voices, we are led to a surprising outcome and even a pathway toward healing. An enlightening and exciting read, the proposals hold great promise for those recovering from violence.... -- Linda G. Mills, New York University
