Publisher's Synopsis

Transformative justice seeks to solve the problem of violence at the grassroots level, without relying on punishment, incarceration, or policing. Community-based approaches to preventing crime and repairing its damage have existed for centuries. However, in the punitive atmosphere of contemporary criminal justice systems, they are often marginalised and operate under the radar. Beyond Survival puts these strategies front and centre as real alternatives to today s failed models of confinement and 'correction'. In this collection, a diverse group of authors focuses on concrete and practical forms of redress and accountability, assessing existing practices and marking paths forward. They use a variety of forms - from toolkits to personal essays - to delve deeply into the 'how to' of transformative justice, providing alternatives to calling the police, ways to support people having mental health crises, stories of community based murder investigations, and much more. At the same time, they document the history of this radical movement, creating space for long-time organisers to reflect on victories, struggles, mistakes, and transformations.
