Abstract

In this chapter we consider a long-established, but largely unachieved, hope for a conception of justice that uncouples justice from punishment. This hope has been an essential feature of the alternative justice movement – it has also been a feature of Tony Mathews’ work. A promising direction for exploring this hope further, we argue, is within future risk-focused approaches to security governance.
