1 - 2 weeks availability


This book showcases innovative justice initiatives from around the world which engage offenders, practitioners and communities to reduce reoffending and support desistance and positive change. It is groundbreaking in bringing together inspiring ideas and pioneering practices to analyse how 'justice done differently' is making a difference. The voices and experiences of the people at the forefront of these innovative initiatives are presented throughout the book, including offenders, corrections staff and directors, the judiciary, scientists and academics, volunteers and community organisations. Strengths-based research methods are used to investigate and celebrate best practices and 'good news stories' from the field. The authors raise critical questions about what is considered innovative and effective, for whom and in what context, presenting their own conceptual approach for analysing innovation. With initiatives drawn from diverse jurisdictions and cultures - including the UK, Europe, Australia, Asia, the US and South America - this book showcases original ideas and refreshing developments that have the potential to transform rehabilitation and reintegration practices. The book's substance and style will resonate with practitioners, students and academics across the interdisciplinary fields of criminology and criminal justice.
