Abstract

La relazione fra criminologia critica e giustizia riparativa è una relazione piuttosto scomoda. Da un lato, la giustizia riparativa è una storia di ottimismo, riforme e cambiamento sociale; dall'altro, essa, poiché tende a funzionare all'interno dei sistemi tradizionali di giustizia penale, non riesce ad opporsi ai processi di esclusione e di criminalizzazione. Questo capitolo esplora alcune delle tensioni esistenti tra giustizia riparativa e criminologia critica e propone una disamina della giustizia riparativa per quanto concerne le sue potenzialità non realizzate.

This chapter explores the tensions between critical criminology and restorative justice. Of particular focus is the paradoxical nature of restorative justice, where on the one hand restorative justice is a story of optimism, reform and social change, yet its operationalization within traditional systems of criminal justice makes it inseparable from the processes of exclusion and criminalization.
