Coursework please speak about the work of Albert Elglash I have provided
you information below alongside theoretical roots of restorative
justice I would like you to reference to (include all
in the bibilography) and assessment of restorative justice.
The term ‘restorative justice’ is sometimes traced to the work of
Albert Eglash (1958) who distinguished between 3 types of justice:
Retributive Justice – in which the primary focus is the fair
punishment of the offender (on basis of just deserts and
Distributive Justice – where the primary aim is the fair allocation of resources in society.
Restorative Justice (RJ) – which is primarily concerned with restitution.
THEORETICAL ROOTS OF Restorative Justice
Nils Christie – Conflicts as Property
John Braithwaite – Reintegrative Shaming
Travis Hirschi – Control Theory
David Matza and Gresham Sykes – Neutralisation Techniques
Sherman and Strang’s 2007 report (‘Restorative Justice: The Evidence’) found that Restorative Justice.
reduced reoffending for some offenders but not all
reduced victims post-traumatic stress
reduced victims desire to seek revenge
increased victims satisfaction with CJS
reduced costs if offender diverted from prison
Shapland’s study for the MoJ in 2001 also found that the majority of victims were engaged and satisfied.

Wikipedia Information to guide you:
Capital punishment is a matter of active controversy in several countries and states, and positions can vary within a single political
ideologyor cultural region. In the European Union (EU), Article 2 of the Charter
of Fundamental Rights of the European Union prohibits the use of capital punishment.The Council
of Europe, which has 47 member states, has sought to abolish the use of the death penalty by its members absolutely, through Protocol
13 of the European Convention on Human Rights. However, this
only affects those member states which have signed and ratified it, and they do not include Armenia, Russia,
and Azerbaijan. The United
Nations General Assembly has adopted, throughout the years from 2007 to 2018, seven non-binding resolutions calling for a global
moratorium on executions, with a view to eventual abolition
