SAENZ LOPEZ, Karla Annett Cynthia  and  GONZALEZ LOZANO, Deniss Karina. Development of restorative justice in the context of domestic violence. Rev. Fac. Der. [online]. 2016, n.40, pp.245-260. ISSN 0797-8316.

Restorative justice has developed in the past few years due to the verifiable benefits of providing an alternative conflict resolution approach which favors remedies, out-ofcourt arrangements and dialogue between the parties directly involved in disputes. Despite being mostly applied within the sphere of criminal justice -especially within the juvenile criminal justice system in force in many countries- the philosophy of restorative justice has affected other areas of social conflict such as domestic violence and violence against women. Analyzing how other countries apply Restorative Justice in cases of domestic violence and of violence against women, provides Uruguay with a framework to streamline the efforts towards providing victims, offenders, and communities with quality law enforcement processes primarily focused on a comprehensive restoration for all those involved.

Keywords : restorative justice; domestic violence; restorative processes; remedies; violence against women.
