Abstract

This chapter reviews debates about the use of Restorative Justice (RJ) for gendered violence. It identifies theoretical and empirical limitations to the capacity of generic models of RJ to promote victim interests for such offences. Part 2 considers gendered violence in Indigenous communities and notes that research and commentary often fails to recognise Indigenous women's need and interests. It concludes that the best way forward is to move beyond oppositional contrasts between RJ and criminal justice to develop hybrid models that adopt anti-subordination as a principle, supported by the requisite resources to protect that end, in working towards safe and just outcomes.
