To what extent is restorative justice able to `restore' the harm suffered by victims of crimes of interpersonal violence? To answer this question, Daniela Bolivar Fernandez draws on literature from criminology, victimology and psychology and examines the effectiveness of restorative justice in terms of emotional restoration, rather than victim satisfaction.Drawing on original research, Bolivar Fernandez examines the victim restoration process from a psycho-social perspective. It offers an integrative, comprehensive and in-depth analysis of victims' experiences of restorative justice.
