American Boy


Yes We Can - Barack Obama in RJ mode

"A proposta de Barack Obama é, justamente, a de atenuar tais cisões e restabelecer os laços sociais, para poder efetivamente governar, sob o prisma de uma justiça restaurativa. Ele entende que não vai enfrentar com sucesso os desafios da crise econômica, da reanimação dos parceiros internacionais, do aquecimento global, sem uma sociedade menos dividida e anômica. "

Produto final - Cost Action A21


Robert Mackay, Marko Bosnjak, Johan Deklerck, Christa Pelikan, Bas van Stokkom and Martin Wright (Eds.)


'Images of Restorative Justice Theory' is the product of serious work and discussions over four years in an international and multidisciplinary group funded by the COST Action A 21 ‘Restorative Justice Developments in Europe’.

It provides its readers with contributions by experienced academics and researchers that deepen the understanding of restorative justice from the broad perspective of macro-theories down to a focus on micro dynamics in restorative justice procedures.

The position of restorative justice vis-á-vis the law and the criminal justice system is systematically analyzed and discussed. Ideas and positions from the Anglophone academic world are confronted or enriched with the contrasting traditions in political and sociological theory and legal reasoning of Continental Europe.

All this makes this volume a novel contribution that will stimulate theoretical thinking and further enquiries and debates about restorative justice.'
