The objective of this research was first to synthesize high quality, quantitative studies that evaluate the effectiveness of various restorative justice programs, and second, to evaluate the effect of different restorative justice program components, such as apologizing to victims, family participation, and including the victim in the process, to name a few. From these studies, researchers extracted results related to delinquency, nondelinquency, and victim outcomes for offender and victim participants in restorative justice programs.
