“…after presenting in this first chapter the main aims and methods of this book, the authors aim to investigate restorative justice possibilities in several (post-)conflict regions, by drawing on various local informal and formal practices for dealing with violent conflicts. In short, the book aims to examine if, how and to which extent restorative justice is applicable to large-scale violent conflicts in deifferent cultural, social, political and historical contexts and whether commonalities can be identified within the different regions under analysis.” (abstract)
