Abstract

In her paper presented to the Institute of Criminology seminar 'Restorative Justice, Conferencing and the Possibilities of Reform', Kathleen Daly (1998) advocated the exploration of 'spliced justice forms'. By this, Daly recognised the potential of a collaboration 'where an informal restorative justice process was piggybacked on a formal traditional method of prosecuting and sanctioning serious offences' (Daly 1998:10). In advancing this position, Daly recognised the merits of an interrelationship between formal and informal justice. She referred to Roger Matthews view (1998) that formal and informal justice are neither dichotomous nor a matter of choosing one or the other, but of examining how they worked together (Findlay & Zevkic 1988).
