Advocates of restorative justice claim that these models can
benefit offenders, victims, and communities and also address historical
injustices perpetrated against Aboriginal peoples. These claims extend
to cases of intimate violence. In the case of judicially convened
sentencing circles in cases of intimate violence in Canada, these claims
have been borne out. In fact, by measuring the outcomes in these cases
against recent studies of battered women's needs, these models as
they are currently constituted, have inadequately addressed social
injustice and inequality experienced by women within Canadian Aboriginal
communities and, in some instances, have revictimized survivors of
intimate violence (Journal Abstract).
