On August 12th, Cymone Fuller, who leads our work on restorative justice, joined Abigail Crocker (University of Vermont) and Avery Arrington (National Center on Restorative Justice) for a panel discussion focused on how researchers and practitioners can work together to better capture the many benefits of restorative justice as an alternative to prosecution and punishment. 

Speaking to criminal defense lawyers and state advocates from around the country, they discussed the importance of tracking outcomes beyond recidivism, the need to involve practitioners and participants in the design of studies, and the role of research in thoughtfully preserving the authenticity of restorative justice when defense attorneys and prosecutors are involved in diverting select cases away from the legal system and into a restorative process instead.
