Restorative and Transformative Justice for Sexual Violence
Authors: Tamera Burnett and Mandi Gray
This report explores the barriers and availability of restorative and transformative justice (RJ/TJ) options for sexual violence in Canada. Over the last several decades, many mainstream feminists and anti-violence organizations have been wary of the ability of RJ/TJ to adequately respond to sexual violence. More recently, there has been a growing interest on the part of feminist organizations, such as LEAF, to embrace RJ/TJ as a legitimate avenue of justice for survivors of sexual violence.
