Restorative justice – problems and perspectives

Abstract In this article it is claimed that the state of Rondônia should have a better implementation and application of methods of restorative justice. It is argued that traditional notion of crime and punishment is not achieving the goals it proposes. The increasing numbers of incarceration, alongside with the escalation of crime, proves the inefficacy of the retributive justice paradigm. Restorative justice is presented as an alternative.
