The vengeful victim ? assessing the attitudes of victims participating in restorative youth conferencing.

Doak, J. and O'Mahony, D. (2006) 'The vengeful victim ? assessing the attitudes of victims participating in restorative youth conferencing.', International review of victimology., 13 (2). pp. 157-177.

Abstract

Considers the findings of research into the youth conferencing system in Northern Ireland which assessed the validity of the view that victim participation in sentencing decisions would lead to higher sentences with a greater retributive element. Outlines the victims' reasons for participating in the conference, and their descriptions of their experiences. Analyses the elements of the conference plans negotiated with the victims' participation.
