"In this chapter I will discuss the importance of restorative principles in identifying and understanding stakeholder needs, interests and responsibilities; I will distinguish between immediate, intermediate and long-term stakeholder needs, interests and responsibilities; I will elaborate on some key stakeholder needs, interests and responsibilities; lastly, I will summarize key points of the chapter. Throughout the chapter, I will consider recent research that compares restorative and traditional approaches in terms of participant satisfaction and other important outcomes." (excerpt)
