D12 : Does ADR have a place in criminal law?

Can restorative justice in juvenile and adult courts meet the ideals of sentencing? Restorative justice projects in some indigenous communities use traditional cultural practices to heal relationships, with imprisonment as a last resort. Do these lead to better results–for the offender? For the victim? For the community? Can lessons learned in these community-based projects inform a more effective and humane approach to criminal justice generally, especially with respect to segments of a society that are over-represented in prison populations?
