The aim of this study was to analyze the psychological and community factors that lead to acceptance and effectiveness of restorative justice. The final sample consisted of 210 participants. A questionnaire that included demographic variables, and scales that measure empathy, emotional expression, social cohesion, leadership, intolerance, and acceptance of restorative justice was used. Data was analyzed using a structural equation model. Results showed that positive attitudes towards restorative justice were positively predicted by leadership and negatively by intolerance. Emotional expression had a direct and positive effect on intolerance. Social cohesion affected positively empathy and empathy influenced emotional expression.
