"In this article we use a case study of the Restorative Justice-Victoria program in British Columbia, Canada, to identify these challenges and suggest how they may be overcome. We focus on: (1) defining and educating the community; (2) creating partnerships with funding and referral agencies; (3) recruiting and training volunteers; and (4) obtaining financial support. The learning that has come from addressing these challenges sheds light on the practical difficulties inherent in supporting a shift from a retributive to a restorative model of justice." (excerpt)
