TOWARDS RESTORATIVE JUSTICE
The Challenges, Promises and Processes of New Paradigm
A conference on Language, Law and Social Justice co-presented by the Australian Systemic Functional Linguistics Association and the Sydney Institute of Criminology. 7th-9th December 2009, Sydney Law School, University of Sydney.
Governments around the world are actively experimenting with new ways of doing justice. Family group 'conferencing', circle sentencing, native title tribunals, land rights claims, truth commissions-all in various ways attempt to deliver a better quality of justice for those most immediately affected by a crime and to redress the disadvantages that certain social groups have historically experienced before the law. How are acts of repair and reconciliation negotiated in the fine detail of such processes? How do they compare to more familiar genres of police work and legal-judicial practice? Where does the vision of restorative justice begin and end?
Keynote Speakers: John Braithwaite (ARC Federation Fellow, Australian National University); Diana Eades (School of Behavioural, Cognitive and Social Sciences, University of New England); Peter Gray (Judge, Federal Court of Australia); Frances Rock (School of English Communication and Philosophy, Cardiff University); Julie Stubbs (Professor of Criminology, University of Sydney)
