Restorative justice after mass violence: Opportunities and risks for children and youth
abstract from the UNICEF Innocenti Working Paper by Laura Stovel and Marta Valinas:
There is growing interest in the role that restorative justice can play in addressing mass atrocities. This paper describes the associated principles and practices within juvenile justice systems and in societies emerging from mass violence. It also examines the meaning, opportunities and limitations of restorative justice in transitional societies, particularly in relation to the needs of young victims and offenders.
