My visit to Bolivia was a fascinating experience.The opportunity to be involved in introducing Restorative Justice to Bolivia arose after I did an introductory workshop, conflict resolution and mediation for CEREFE. This is an institution for children with disabilities and their parents situated in El Alto, a shanty town of 80,000 people above La Paz city. CEREFE’s director was so taken with the workshop that he asked me to train all his staff in mediation skills, to deal better with the many conflicts in the school. A particular issue was the longrunning conflict between education and health staff. (excerpt)
