Source: (2008) Report of the fifth conference of the European Forum for Restorative Justice, Building restorative justice in Europe: cooperation between the public, policy makers, practitioners and researchers, Verona.

The author discusses why people involved in mediation should not be afraid to interact with the media. She goes on to describe how journalists think and work in order to provide tips on how best to be a good source and accommodate the media’s values while portraying restorative justice in its best light. All her points are illustrated by her own experience as both a journalist and a person who works with the Norwegian Ministry of Justice.
