This chapter presents an overview of the development of social justice perspectives within criminology and criminal justice and their impact on the administration of justice. The chapter analyzes the (in)existence of a social justice influence within the administration of justice during the past fifty years, examines contemporary and controversial processes, and suggests policy solutions to modern justice dilemmas. Peacemaking criminology and restorative justice paradigms are presented as possible pathways within which to better operationalize Dr. King’s social justice philosophy and its implications for both policy and change.

Keywords:   Administration of justice, Crime, Social justice, Peacemaking criminology, Restorative justice
