Does restorative justice have a role in responding to homicide?

Cath Staincliffe is a Manchester based crime fiction author. Her novel Letters to My Daughter’s Killer movingly explores the experience of bereavement through homicide and the emotional needs unsatisfied by the formal criminal justice process.

Drawing from fiction and from the lived experience of two mothers directly affected by crime related deaths, the dialogue will explore the potential in Scotland for restorative practices to address some of the needs of those who have seen harm caused to a wide range of people in their family network.
