Abstract

This paper aims to explore and explain the key "adaptations" by which community sanctions have sought legitimacy in the wake of the decline of penal welfarism and of the rehabilitative ideal. It shows how community sanctions have survived and even thrived in these shifting social, cultural and penal currents despite various predictions of their demise. The four adaptations that we identify and discuss include, respectively, managerial, punitive, rehabilitative, and reparative aspects. We conclude trying to contribute our analysis of the future prospects for community sanctions and their legitimation.
