Abstract This article recognises that the TJ movement is poised to extend its influence into mainstream courts. It argues that mainstreaming invites a new set of questions and issues for TJ scholarship. Mainstreaming also provides the opportunity to create a body of robust and appropriate research to carry TJ into the future. This article discusses the need for research that supports the development of consistency and authenticity in active judging. It considers the contribution that procedural justice research has made to the understanding of the justice system and the role and impact of legal actors other than judges or magistrates. The second part of the article considers the alignment between TJ approaches and human rights values, with reference to concerning the concept of voluntariness and the presence of individuals with disabilities in the criminal justice system. The article argues for an active alliance between TJ practitioners and academics to create a dedicated body of TJ relevant research.
