Despite lack of formal national and international strategies for the use of restorative justice in many jurisdictions worldwide, we have witnessed a global push for further integration of restorative practices with complex crimes. For example, remarkably, the Province of Nova Scotia in Canada has developed a restorative justice programme for adults and young offenders and advocated for the use of the process in the context of serious crimes when appropriate. In Australia, the ACT’s restorative justice programme has been extended to provide support for victims of family violence and sexual assault.

The readiness and suitability of restorative justice in cases of complex and serious crimes remain largely unexplored and in-depth research is required. The identification and involvement of stakeholders is imperative. Particularly, research on the identification and involvement of stakeholders; the entitlement of stakeholders of complex and serious offences; the stage of the criminal justice system at which restorative justice processes and how sentences are distributed; the conditions at which restorative justice would be advantageous to all parties; and clarity on the consistent application of theoretical frameworks of restorative justice, among other issues, are key for further integration of restorative justice for complex and serious crimes.
