Several studies conclude that the aim of punishment, especially in the juvenile perspective, must be reconsidered. Restorative Justice might be used as an alternative tool within the judicial system; indeed our correctional system cannot cope with the overwhelming number of offenders, especially if they are young, and, above all, cannot avoid further psychological damage that the prison could have on both their physical and mental development. This paper aims at highlighting how the RJ can represent an alternative for juvenile offenders and, consequently their victims.
Keywords: Restorative Justice, Italian legislation, young victims, young offenders, community
