Courts and the community often struggle to find innovative solutions to offending that take into account the needs of victims and the community, and the need to support criminals to not re-offend. Increasingly, those of us who work in the law are looking to Restorative Justice as a viable alternative to more traditional retributive responses to criminal behaviour.
Rob Hulls, the Director of the Centre for Innovative Justice, will discuss the Centre's recent report into sexual offending. He will outline its recommendations and explore their potential application as a means of promoting victim empowerment and offender accountability.
David Moore, communications consultant and current President of the Victorian Association for Restorative Justice, will explain and compare the common elements of restorative practices in programs such as Family-Led Decision-Making, the Defence Abuse Response Taskforce, and Restorative Conferencing for sexual assault cases.
Following their presentations, Rob and David will participate in a panel discussion on Restorative Justice with Carolyn Worth (Manager, South Eastern Centre Against Sexual Assault) and Katrina Robinson (Youth Justice Group Conferencing Convenor, CatholicCare Sandhurst).
