Contempt and the Constitution–Part II – Anthony Gray
Part I of this article considered the existing common law of contempt in light of the implied freedom of political communication, concluding there were real doubts about current contempt law given this constitutional freedom. In Part II another constitutional aspect of contempt law is considered – the question of reform to contempt law, and constitutional limits on such proposals, particularly Chapter III of the Constitution.
A Restorative City for New South Wales – Could Newcastle be a Model? – John Anderson and Nicola Ross
There is growing evidence that the experiences of restorative cities around the world, such as Hull UK, Oakland US and Whanganui New Zealand, have been positive for their citizenry. In implementing interdisciplinary restorative practices and restorative justice measures across a range of systems including education, justice, child welfare and health, restorative cities have achieved transformational change in the culture and social fabric of their communities. The focus has been on viewing children and youth (being amongst the most vulnerable in these communities) as potential future community leaders. This article examines the evidence for restorative practice through vignettes of the existing models and experiences of international restorative cities before considering the suitability of Newcastle, New South Wales as a candidate for a restorative city. Lessons learned from these cities may advance the current process of urban renewal in Newcastle through developing strategies for social, cultural and economic change to address enduring forms of harm and pockets of disadvantage. A blueprint is devised for Newcastle to move towards being a restorative city.
