Restorative Justice Experiences Involving Child Victims
This chapter begins by exploring the potential benefits of restorative justice for child victims. It then reviews five restorative justice programs in New Zealand, Australia and Canada. All these programs have included child victims, in some more than in others; they have all been evaluated and therefore provide valuable lessons from their levels of success, and most of them included sexual assaults, family violence and abuse. The chapter discusses the major concerns that emerge in relation to the involvement of child victims in restorative processes, and considers some of the solutions deployed in these case studies. The concluding section uses the Needs/Rights model to demonstrate the challenges to RJ involving child victims and its potential benefits for them.
