Restorative Justice between Aspiration and Reality

Constantin Tanase


Emerging during the second half of the twentieth century, the concept of restorative justice is insufficiently studied and practiced in the Romanian social and judicial area. The legislation and logistics required to conduct programs of restorative justice are scarce and weak. Despite some projects initiated by the Ministry of Justice in 2003 and 2004, with some encouraging results, the studies did not carry on and experience was not brought any further. This study aims to present some essential features of restorative justice in the current status of the concept, as well as some proposals competent institutions have made. Also, we aim to state some views, mentalities and visions which the concept of restorative justice must face in Romania. Finally, a synthesis of the international forums which Romania is part of (the E.U. and U.N) will be presented, together with the actions taken in that respect.
