This publication is based on a project that sought to document current projects implementing restorative justice in South Africa. As is the case in many other countries, a number of significant attempts have been made in this regard since the early 1990s. But what concrete progress has been made? Who is delivering direct restorative justice services to victims and offenders? What are the issues faced by these service providers? And how can the experiences of other countries help us respond to these and other similar, frequently-raised questions? These were the kinds of questions that the authors set out to try and answer in carry out this project. (excerpt)
