Navigating Faith in Criminal Justice

Navigating Faith in Criminal Justice
Research paper
Description: 

The criminal justice system is failing and incarceration rates are rising as a result of punitive practices. The law will be upheld with morality, humane discipline, and restorative practices by the hands of those who are informed by their faith and who want to make a difference within the criminal justice system. In reviewing the qualitative literature, I have identified how the criminal justice system is failing, how it has distanced itself from being the just system it was intended to be, and how there is a need to change it. I have proposed the disadvantages and advantages of faith being an instrument for change and how faith can inform people to be restorative in their work within the criminal justice system. With more people thinking restoratively, there is hope that the failing criminal justice system can be impacted for the better.
