Thank you for your interest in this Special Issue on “New Frontiers in Restorative Justice and Restorative Practice: Expanding “What Works””. This issue is jointly edited by Dr Jonathan Hobson, from the University of Gloucestershire, and the Restorative Justice Council, UK. As an independent, third sector membership and advocacy body for the field of restorative practice, the Restorative Justice Council provides a voice on the widespread use of all forms of restorative practice, including restorative justice. As part of this Special Edition, we are keen to receive submissions from both academics as well from practitioners engaged in restorative work. For these practitioners, we are offering the chance to pair with academics in the field who can provide support in the writing process.
In this Special Issue, we are examining new and innovative applications of restorative justice and restorative practices, as well as providing fresh evidence in support of existing practices and schemes. In this way, we hope the work will contribute to the growing body of literature that illustrates the breadth and impact of restorative work. The scope of submissions is therefore broad. We are seeking submissions that detail or evaluate new forms of restorative justice and practice, examine innovative schemes, and reflect on projects in areas where restorative work is less well established. We also welcome submissions contributing to the evidence base for restorative work, for instance, assessing existing schemes with new data, or examining successful schemes that have expanded their work.
If you are a practitioner interested in contributing and would like to discuss the opportunity to pair with an academic, please contact one of the Guest Editors for this Special Edition.
