Wilson, publisher and editor of Hope magazine, illustrates and explains mediation and the process of restorative justice. He identifies which crimes can be addressed through mediation and which aren’t suited to this approach. He also covers the limits and pitfalls of the process due to the attitudes and feelings of the victims and offenders involved. Howard Zehr follows by identifying and explaining the 4 steps to follow to carry out the actual mediation of a victim-offender conflict.
