This book investigates how, while children used as soldiers are primarily perceived as victims of offences against international law, they also commit war atrocities. In the aftermath of armed conflict, the mainstream justice system targets warlords internationally, armed groups and militias’ commanders who abduct and enrol children as combatants, leaving child perpetrators not being held accountable for their alleged gross human rights violations. Attempts to prosecute child soldiers through the mainstream justice system have resulted in child rights abuses. Where no accountability measures have been taken, demobilised young soldiers have experienced rejection, and eventually, some have returned to soldiering. This research provides evidence of the potential of restorative justice peacemaking circles and locally-based jurisprudence – specifically the Baraza - to hold former child soldiers accountable and facilitate their reintegration into society.

This comprehensive guide provides an accessible introduction to the philosophy of restorative justice and its practical application in a wide range of settings, showing how it can help both victims and offenders when harm has been done. Drawing on many years' experience of working in victim support, probation, mediation and restorative practices, Marian Liebmann uses pertinent case examples to illustrate how restorative justice can be used effectively to work with crime and its effects. Also included are sections on confronting bullying in schools, dealing with sexual and racial violence, tackling antisocial behaviour and community reconciliation after war. Whether in the context of families, schools, communities, criminal justice or prisons, the author argues that restorative justice is a `seamless philosophy' which can be applied flexibly to meet diverse needs. Liebmann provides an international outlook, examining how restorative justice is practised around the world, including traditional Maori and Aboriginal approaches. Restorative Justice: How It Works is a key reference for magistrates, social workers, probation officers, Youth Offending Team workers, police, teachers and health professionals, as well as the lay reader.

Lehre und Lehrentwicklung an Hochschulen haben in Deutschland in den letzten Jahren einen großen Entwicklungsschub erfahren. Die Verabschiedung des Vizepräsidenten für Studium und Lehre Professor Dr. med. Wolfgang Huhn in den Ruhestand ist Anlass für die Fachhochschule Kiel, seinen Einsatz durch diesen Festschriftband zu würdigen und kürzlich umgesetzte sowie aktuelle Lehr- und Hochschulentwicklungsvorhaben zusammenzutragen. Dazu zählen z.B. strukturelle Entwicklungen wie die Systemakkreditierung und in diesem Zusammenhang eingeführte Instrumente der Qualitätsentwicklung wie auch die Gründung des Zentrums für Lernen und Lehrentwicklung, das die Lehrenden bei der Studiengangs- und Modulentwicklung und der individuellen hochschuldidaktischen Weiterbildung unterstützt. Neben der Dokumentation solcher institutionalisierten Verfahren und Strukturen bringt der Band übergreifende Themen sowie Lehrpraxisbeispiele zusammen: Während sich einige Beiträge allgemeinen Betrachtungen wie der Geschichte des Hochschultyps Fachhochschule in Deutschland oder dem Management von hochschulischen Veränderungsprozessen widmen, schildern andere Artikel Beispiele aus der hochschulischen Lehrpraxis - vom Einsatz einzelner Lehr-/Lernmethoden wie z.B. die Verwendung von Peer Reviews über projektorientierte Lernarrangements bis hin zu komplexen didaktischen Maßnahmenbündeln.

Restorative Justice - The Empowerment Model presents a powerful challenge to many current accounts of the criminal justice system. Charles Barton gives a clear and insightful analysis of current restorative justice philosophy and theory. He uses a unifying and overarching principle of empowerment to provide a distinct conceptual framework for restorative justice theory and practice. He puts forward a step-by-step implementation process, which includes restorative meeting facilitation, complete with seating plans and scripted prompts for mediators, keepers, and facilitators. There will also be two sample role plays in the book and additionally there will be four complete role plays available on our website, closer to publication. Barton emphasises the importance of each participant in a restorative justice meeting - the victims, offenders and their supporters as well as professionals such as police, social workers and legal advocates. Successful programs must consistently and reliably achieve maximally restorative outcomes for all of them. Practitioners need always keep this objective in mind.. Barton's book will strengthen their comprehension and facilitate application of the practical process.

They use jargon-free language and provide helpful task checklists for speed and ease of reference.
