Le mouvement pour la justice restauratrice : " An idea whose time has come "

Abstract : For its supporters, restorative justice is a less formal and professional "third way" in criminal matters, between retribution and rehabilitation. The banner is waved on behalf of very different cases: in the interest of the victims, the offenders, the community, etc. It is also waved on behalf of their advocates, when it contributes to the survival of an Anabaptist denomination, to a critical criminology, or to the preservation of paralegal professions. This article analyzes restorative justice as a "movement" that links mobilizations located in different social spaces, thus showing the impoverishment of the reforming ambition of a so-called "radical" social movement.
