This file will begin to give you some idea of how much information is out there, globally, on this issue. Restorative Justice is probably the closest to beginning to actually deal with the problems that lead to the abuse, and hopefully prevent what has gone on without notice for a very long time.
There are two stories posted: Dealing with Sex Offenders - How to Repair and Rebuild and Transition House for Male Sex Offenders: "Not in My Backyard". They will give you a sense of how those who believe in restorative justice feel about it.
Google: "restorative justice" and "sex offenders" for references such as these.
- Circles of Support Report of a Canadian group of volunteers using restorative justice principles. The Restorative Justice Consortium.
- A New Strategy for Sex Offenders Restorative Justice Ireland Network Website. Circles of support for high risk sex offenders; volunteers to both befriend the offenders and hold them accountable.
- Managing Sex Offenders Describes Office of Justice Programs Center for Sex Offender Management. Gives 1997 statistics.
- Keeping the Community Involvement in Restorative Justice UN Declaration Initiative. About 3/4ths of the way down the file, speaks of "the work being done by the Mennonite Central Committee and the Toronto Community Chaplaincy of the Correctional Services of Canada" and the "circle of support and accountability" operated with sex offenders by volunteers.
- Victim Offender Mediation Association Trainers and Training Programs. Canadian.
