Society is always surprised by the new trends of crimes. The victims always bear the brunt of pain and suffering and are usually at the receiving end of justice. The offenders are likely to be punished by the Criminal Justice System, and in due course of punishment end up being humiliated by the system and society as a whole. It relegates the criminals to the status of the ‘enemy’, a form of dehumanization that both prevents offenders from taking responsibility for the harms they perpetrate and reinforces society’s unequal power relationships. Peacemaking criminology is a new endeavor which has solutions to the problems concerning victim and offender. It is less a theoretical perspective and more a philosophy of non – violent conflict resolution. It draws together an eclectic range of approaches to the study of crime and criminal justice and shares many of its proposals with the restorative justice movement for dealing with the problems of crime and justice.
