Abstract

This report presents the findings of a study conducted to map the extent of restorative practice in Northern Ireland. It was commissioned by the Restorative Justice Forum and conducted by staff and students of the School of Law, Queen‟s University Belfast. The research involved surveys of and interviews with 18 organisations which utilize restorative practice in their work.

The use of restorative justice in Northern Ireland is well documented in relation to youth conferencing and community based projects but perhaps most strikingly we encountered restorative practice being employed by a much wider range of groups and organisations than previously explored. We documented restorative practice within community organisations, statutory agencies, youth justice initiatives, schools and children’s homes.
