However, not all that emanates from the criminal justice system is doom and gloom, not all corrective intervention and sanctions are brutalising and dehumanising, and not all offenders and ex-offenders are left bereft of hope and opportunity. Indeed, this book demonstrates that there are pockets of progressive work across the world that are making a positive difference in the lives of offenders and those around them. For us, these projects constitute important and timely examples of innovative justice.
