"Editors' note: David Miers' chapter on the international development of restorative justice (Chapter 23, this volume) offers an important global perspective on the field. This chapter will supplement that by offering regional reviews of the development of restorative justice in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, North America and the Pacific. The authors of each section review the historical growth of restorative justice, offer a brief survey of its current use and identify unique features of the field within their regions. The chapter concludes by identifying recurring themes within the regions." (excerpt)
