Professor john braithwaite speaks at uct on restorative justice

John Braithwaite (born 30 July 1951, Ipswich) is a Distinguished Professor at the Australian National University (ANU). Braithwaite is the recipient of a number of international awards and prizes for his work, including an honorary doctorate at KU Leuven (2008), the University of Louisville Grawemeyer Award with Peter Drahos for Ideas Improving World Order (2004), and the Prix Emile Durkheim, International Society of Criminology, for lifetime contributions to criminology (2005).


His writings on regulatory capitalism have influenced regulatory scholars in other countries, such as Canadian political scientists G. Bruce Doern, Michael J. Prince and Richard Shultz.

As a criminologist, he is particularly interested in the role of restorative justice, shame management and reintegration in crime prevention. His book Crime, Shame and Reintegration (1989) demonstrated that current criminal justice practice tends to stigmatize offenders, making the crime problem worse. Braithwaite argues that restorative justice enables both offenders and citizens, by way of mediation, to repair the social harm caused by crime. He has also worked with Philip Pettit on the application of republican theory to criminal law and regulation.

Braithwaite’s other contributions include the development and application of responsive regulation frameworks and restorative justice to many areas of business regulation, health care and aged care. He is the founder of the Regulatory Institutions Network,[1] a large research group within the College of Asia and the Pacific [2] at the Australian National University, working on regulation and governance issues.

He is a former Australian Research Council (ARC) Federation Fellow at the Regulatory Institutions Network (ANU).

He takes forward ideas on restorative justice and responsive regulation in the 20-year comparative project called Peacebuilding Compared, an ambitious study comparing peacebuilding efforts in 48 conflicts throughout the world.

The first book, Anomie and Violence: Non-truth and Reconciliation in Indonesian Peacebuilding, found that peacebuilding in Papua, Maluku and North Maluku, Central Sulawesi, West Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan, and Aceh was largely achieved through non-truth and reconciliation.
