Old Goffman as a New Research Strategy in Restorative Justice

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

During the last twenty years the social constructivist approach to truth has seriously challenged the way in which we experience science and reality. This also applies to theory and research in restorative justice. As the most recognized thinker in face-to-face communication, Erving Goffman offers a vision of how the new approach to truth can be incorporated into and compliment restorative justice research. The current article aims to provide analytical tools and concepts to qualitative, micro-sociological research in restorative justice that can respond to the social constructivist notion of truth.
