The work of peacebuilding in postconflict
societies presents significant
challenges and opportunities. This paper
introduces restorative peacebuilding, and
explores its implications for the work of
the United Nations Peacebuilding
Commission (Commission) and postconflict
societies. This is the first of a series
of papers to provide information and
support to post-conflict societies and to the
Commission regarding the use of
restorative justice in the work of
peacebuilding. It is offered as an invitation
to explore a new way of thinking about
justice, and to initiate dialogue about
restorative peacebuilding. (excerpt)
