(p.191) 7 Conclusions
Child Victims and Restorative Justice

Tali Gal

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the findings and arguments of the previous chapters. It discusses the Needs/Rights Model and its contribution as an assessment tool for the criminal justice process, as well as a general guide for child-inclusive restorative justice. Further, the chapter extends the potential of the Needs/Rights Model beyond the discussion on child victims: Within restorative justice, similar methodology can be used to identify the needs and rights of other stakeholders such as offenders and other victims belonging to weakened populations. The chapter then discusses ways in which restorative justice can be integrated in current legal systems. It argues that while restorative justice is typically practiced as an addition to the justice system, it is possible to envision that child inclusive restorative justice would replace the criminal process in many cases of childhood victimization, and might eventually lead to a decline in childhood victimization.
