The handbook offers, in a quick reference format, an overview of key considerations in the implementation of participatory responses to crime based on a restorative justice approach. Its focus is on a range of measures and programmes that are flexible in their adaptation to criminal justice systems and that complement them while taking into account varying legal, social and cultural circumstances. It was prepared for the use of criminal justice officials, non-governmental organisations and community groups who are working together to improve current responses to crime and conflict in their community.This handbook contains seven sections. The first one reviews the main concepts involved, as well as the values and objectives of participatory and restorative justice. Section two deals with the use of restorative programmes, while section three focuses on the question of the normative framework for such programmes. The remaining sections deal with various aspects of the implementation of a successful restorative programme.
They deal respectively with programme design and implementation, programme operation and the mobilisation of community assets, and programme evaluation issues and findings.
