Overwhelming Support for Restorative Justice: UK Poll (June 2016)

Once the public learns about restorative justice and hears of its positive effects on crime victims there is strong support for restorative justice. See this poll published by the UK’s Restorative Justice Commission. The UK is far ahead of many countries in its support for restorative justice that is victims-centered and victims-driven. The public needs to  know what restorative justice is and why is it so effective in  increasing victims’ satisfaction after crime, and changing behavior of offenders by encouraging accountability.
