"Ex-Prisoners and Community-Based Restorative Justice: A Comparative Analysis of Northern Ireland and North America."

Allely's research focuses on ex-prisoner involvement in community-based restorative justice efforts in Northern Ireland and the United States, examining the impact that ex-prisoner inclusion has had on both the micro-dynamics of restorative processes as well as the mechanisms involved in wider societal peacebuilding. In particular, her work explores ex-prisoner agency and the opportunities associated with incorporating formerly incarcerated individuals as leaders within restorative organizations. Allely's interests additionally include restorative justice, criminal justice reform, prisoner reentry, transitional justice, and post-conflict transformation.
