Restorative justice responses to sexual harm

The criminal justice system’s response to sexual harm fails most victim/survivors.

Reports of victim/survivors’ experiences in workplaces, homes and in public indicate that a single, criminal justice response to this pervasive behaviour will not meet many victim/survivors concepts of justice. A range of responses are needed to address the justice gap experienced by victim/survivors of sexual harm. Restorative justice can offer processes that meet the unmet justice needs of victim/survivors in ways that don’t perpetuate further harm.

In this discussion, practitioners and experts from the Centre for Innovative Justice’s restorative justice arm, Open Circle, along with experts from Transforming Justice Australia and accountability specialists, explore the challenges, opportunities and necessary safeguards in approaching this work.
