Reparation and the place of the victim in the criminal justice process have been the focus of recent legislation and policy initiatives. As a result practitioners are required to place more emphasis on working with victims. The contributors to this book bring together research material from the wide range of disciplines involved and present an overview of the information needed for effective practice.

They examine the practicalities of reparation orders, family group conferencing, restorative cautioning schemes and the workings of youth offending teams. They also evaluate the effects of legislation such as the Crime and Disorder Act and the Victim’s Charter and explore issues raised by specific types of crime such as urban and rural crime, ‘hate crimes’ and male violence in the home. This book is essential reading for all agencies and individuals working with offenders and their victims.
