    Abstract

    Recent animal cruelty court cases have once again shown that the traditional justice system falls well short for both victims and offenders. Felicity Tepper, senior research officer at ANU’s School of Regulation and Global Governance explores how restorative justice could have better outcomes for humans and animals alike. As an alternative response to addressing harm and crime, restorative justice offers an approach that seeks to repair harm and restore relationships by moving beyond the traditional punitive sanctions of many justice systems. By placing emphasis upon healing, rebuilding relationships, and seeking accountability for the harm done, restorative justice invokes the will to act conscientiously and knowingly to fix wrongdoings and to actively prevent future harm.
