Hybrid politics for justice: the Silk Road of restorative justice II

John Braithwaite

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This article argues three propositions. The first is that restorative justice should be a legal principle that can trump legal rules, such as sentencing rules. Second it argues for embedding restorative justice in a hybrid political philosophy that is republican-feminist-socialist-capitalist. Third, it goes beyond Persia to China: the Silk Road of Restorative Justice I, that identified incipient examples of this hybridity from Iran to China, to advance a normative account of hybridity. Travelling the Silk Road is a metaphor for the comparative method required of reformers who seek better governance through hybrid governance.
