The New Tough on Crime: A Restorative Justice Perspective
Film is one of the primary methods employed by the contemporary restorative justice movement in an attempt to broaden its appeal and acceptance. This paper, which provides an excerpt of a larger thesis study, examines the framing of restorative justice in training, educational and informational film. Utilizing the frame alignment processes of frame amplification, extension and transformation offered by Snow et al. (1986), this paper discusses how the movement extends its primary framework to include a tough on crime approach through film, thus broadening its appeal and enhancing its potential for acceptance and implementation.
