This Essay develops a model that integrates restorative justice within the conventional punitive system of criminal responsibility and punishment. Contrary to the conventional wisdom, we demonstrate that restorative justice should form a synergy with retributivism, deterrence, incapacitation, and other punitive goals of criminal law. We show how this synergy can be formed, illustrate its operation and identify its potential contribution to social welfare.

Keywords: Criminal Law, Criminal Justice, Restorative Justice, Criminal Process, Sentencing, Punishment, Retributivism, Deterrence, Incapacitation
