Stories of Transformative Justice
By

Rating
Years of working in the area of penal abolition have developed Ruth Morris's thinking on justice issues. In 'Stories of Transformative Justice', she outlines why the current adversarial system of justice fails victims, offenders, their families, and ultimately society in general. Citing stories from Canada, the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and Aboriginal communities around the world, Morris shows there is another path that can transform misery victimisation and punishment into new opportunities for healing and understanding. An inspiring work which proves that 'turning the other cheek' holds the power of transformation.

Reviews

The vision of transformative justice stands as critique and a reminder that the issues surrounding crime cannot be separated from the issue of distributive justice. Concrete practices like sentencing circles, listening, talking and feeling construct a healing space where mutual obligations, responsibility and commitments develop. Storytelling is a powerful way of sharing the experience of transformation. Ruth Morris' collection of stories does this in a compelling way." - Judge Bria Huculak
