The quest for justice has been a powerful driving force in all human societies. In recent times, the notion of restorative justice has gained currency. To achieve restorative justice all those affected by a crime must be involved in finding a solution--one that repairs the harm and restores the broken relationships. This means striving to rebuild the damaged lives not only of those who have sufferd but also of those who have caused suffering to others. It means that healing of hurts, the reconciliation of offenders and victims, and the eventual reintegration into the community of those who have offended, as responsible and productive members of society. This is no easy task. But it is vital to building a cohesive, inclusive, and fair society. Moreover, restorative practices need not be limited to the criminal justice arena. They are equally applicable in other fields of human endeavour where people have been harmed and where the restoration of broken relationships is needed. This book provides an account of how restorative processes and practices are being applied in New Zealand in the justice system, education, civil disputes, and governmental responses to historical wrongs. It will be a valuable source of ideas and inspiration for all those who are seeking to build a more restorative society.
