Colloquy on Restorative Justice Part 1
Welcome to this Colloquy on Restorative Justice (RJ). Both this edition (Volume 36 Issue 2) and the
one that follows (Volume 36 Issue 3) examine an array of RJ approaches to conflict transformation
and resolution. In addition to the foundational contribution made by Toran Hansen and Mark
Umbreit, which summarizes the current state of knowledge on restorative justice, this edition includes
articles examining the use of RJ in a Brazilian prison, reconciliation sentiments among paramilitary
and guerilla groups in Columbia, police attitudes toward RJ in a pilot study in England, and percep-
tions held by members of the public regarding RJ used in the court system. These provide a rich base
of research and practice across criminal justice and court applications. Taken together, these form
something akin to an edited book volume which I hope will be widely read in university courses as
well as by RJ practitioners in the criminal justice arena.
Our call for papers on the topic of restorative justice yielded such a wealth of meaningful contri-
butions that Volume 36 Issue 3 will contain articles focused solely on restorative approaches used in
schools and universities.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with ideas to improve the journal, expand its reach, or deepen
its impact.
Happy Reading!
