This conclusion presents some closing thoughts covered in the preceding chapters of this book. The book discusses the urgency evident in critiques of criminal justice practice as it is pressed to fashion more just responses to wrongdoing. It suggests how restorative justice jurisprudence might be developed to support this. Current sentencing jurisprudence needs to engage with the capacity of restorative justice to more fully meet the essential retributive, restorative and consequential aims identified. It draws ideas from the practice examples canvassed about what institutional designs are possible. The 'extreme edges' of wrongdoing are quarantined from an integrated model. These areas include circumstances where the need to meet either the desert standard or the harmonious relationships standard is so paramount as to exclude a combined justice response. A traditional criminal justice response should remain the mandated response where culpability is denied and needs to be established or dismissed by forensic means.
