Abstract

Many studies on restorative justice1 conferencing have been conducted in the context of ‘what works’ (Doak & O’Mahony, 2018; Maruna et al., 2007). This literature has offered knowledge on what restorative justice conferencing can offer participants,2 such as satisfaction and fairness for victims, and accountability and legitimacy for offenders (for example, see a meta-analysis by Strang et al., 2013 and a narrative review by Braithwaite, 2016). Yet, there is a lack of knowledge about ‘how it works’ (O’Mahony & Doak, 2017; Rossner, 2008). Little is known about how, in what conditions and for whom restorative justice conferencing works (Bolitho, 2017; Saulnier & Sivasubramaniam, 2015; Suzuki & Wood, 2017b).
