In this essay, Ruth-Heffelbower explains restorative justice for a Muslim audience and proposes a process for reconciliation in response to the conflicts in Indonesia. He sketches the recent history of violence in Indonesia. This leads to a review of the history and theory of restorative justice in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific, as well as a diagram and model for peacemaking amidst conflict. The last part of the essay covers Ruth-Heffelbower’s proposals for applying that model to Indonesia.
