This unit will critically examine 'innovative justice' initiatives. It outlines the many 'justice failures' we see in contemporary society. Adopting the viewpoint of victims, offenders, criminal justice systems, communities, and digital communities, it details how each of these groups often do not experience 'justice'. The central question is "can innovative justice solutions deliver better outcomes for victims, offenders, the criminal justice system,
communities, and digital communities?" Unique ways of providing justice will be considered. The evidence base for new ideas will be scrutinized and the historical trends that have embedded the status quo will be unpacked.
