Relational Justice Reviews

“There could not be a more appropriate time to publish this extremely important book… [Relational Justice] is a radical new approach which any one with any concern about our criminal justice system needs to be aware… The Jubilee Policy Group and each of the contributors are to be warmly congratulated on what this book achieves.” Lord Woolf, Former Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales.

“The emphasis placed in the Woolf Report on the quick and open correction of grievances, and in this book on the need to help victims more effectively than in the past, are neat examples of Relational Justice in the way it calls for dignity, civility and respect. I find it a useful new phrase for summing up a long standing and valuable approach to social justice.” His Honour Judge Sir Stephen Tumim, Former Chief Inspector of Prisons.

“Justice involves more than crime and punishment; it should make society whole by restoring relationships and healing people. This book stresses a dynamic perspective in which people are seen not just as individuals but as members of communities; the authors are to be congratulated on their skilful exploration of insights available from the wide range of religious traditions in Britain today.” Rabbi Dr. Norman Solomon, University of Oxford.

“Everyone agrees that we must deal better with the needs of victims and at the same time respect the rights of offenders. The concept of Relational Justice shows great promise in contributing to this important debate.” Mary Tuck CBE, Former Chair of Victim Support.

“The idea of Relational Justice brings to the administration of criminal justice new priorities: the need to treat all those who are involved in its process with courtesy, consideration and respect. Victims of crime have particular need for such treatment.” Baroness Faithfull OBE.

“By bringing a renewed emphasis on the human dimension and on the relationship affected by crime, I believe this book will give hope to all of us who work closely with people caught up on the consequences of crime.” Rt. Rev. Robert Hardy, Former Bishop of Lincoln and Bishop to Prisons.
