Restorative Justice: Trends, Best Practice, and Innovations
Conflict Resolution Quarterly publishes scholarship on relationships between theory, research, and practice in the conflict resolution and ADR fields. Conflict Resolution Quarterly is sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution.
This call for papers is designed to elicit research, evaluations, and practice notes related to restorative justice.
Suggested topics might include but are not limited to:
Ways in which restorative justice practices are being applied in a wide variety of settings and its impact in those settings (e.g. k-12 education, courts, communities, drug or alcohol rehabilitation services, workplaces or other settings).
Innovations in the preparation, training and education for those seeking to implement restorative justice practices inside and outside of the classroom setting.
Comparative use of restorative justice processes across states and countries: What can we learn from its implementation in various cultural or national settings?
Examples of innovative restorative justice practices.
Case studies of the application or evaluation or restorative justice practices with a focus on best practices, new knowledge or skill development.
An analysis of funding sources and political support structures for restorative justice processes. Why does RJ take root in some areas but not others? How can new programs be successfully implemented?
Any other topic associated with the theory, practice, evaluation, or critique of restorative justice as it related to conflict prevention, transformation and resolution.
