That would be contrary to the objective, which is to respect and 11 As noted earlier, restorative justice consequently thought through is not primarily oriented to the offender. Contrary to punitive or rehabilitative justice, restorative justice can operate without an offender being known or arrested. When the harm is known, victim support and other restorative actions can be undertaken in order to compensate and restore. However, if the offender is arrested, he or she should be obliged to do his or her reasonable part in the restoration.
Because coercive intervention has to be used parsimoniously, restorative justice procedures must allow easy exits from the system towards the opportunities for voluntary, informal crime regulation within the community. The so-called subsidiarity principle13 must be taken very seriously: first, in order to intrude on dominion minimally; and secondly, because the restorative calibre of voluntary processes is much greater than coercive restorative sanctions. —Restorative justice procedures must allow increased opportunities for the input of victims and local communities.
The general proposition that penal law is needed in order to deter (potential) offenders appears, therefore, to be more a doctrine than an empirically sustainable theory. Secondly, it has never been clearly demonstrated that punishment as such would result in resocialising, rehabilitating or individually deterring offenders. The impact on offenders is hypothesized as occurring directly or indirectly. Direct effects are expected when punishment is advanced as a means of its own for moral education of the offender (Morris 1981, 1995), or as a form of communication, in order to put pressure on the offender for penance and reform (Duff 1986).
