Source: (1997) The ICCA Journal 3 (August): 7-12.Using the analogy of building a house, Van Ness discusses three elements in developing a restorative justice program. While there a number of different types of houses, a person must consider three critical elements to build a worthy or âsatisfyingâ? house: the foundation; the cornerposts; and the roof. Likewise, while there are varieties of programs in response to crime, a person must consider three key elements to build a program that is restorative: fundamental principles; values; and vision. By identifying restorative principles, values, and vision of programs that deliver âsatisfyingâ? justice, people can better understand why such programs are âsatisfyingâ? and how such programs might be even more restorative.
