Everything you always wanted know about restorative justice (But were afraid to ask).

Trusting, therefore, that the irony of the title carries through, this
thesis obviously does not contain everything the reader would like to
know about restorative justice. I have indeed done some weeding out.
First and foremost, this thesis is not about restorative justice as a way of
life, nor is it about conflict resolution in the schoolyard, at the workplace
or elsewhere. My focus is on restorative justice as it is used in relation to
crime, primarily in the context of domestic jurisdictions (cf. chapters 2-4
and 7) but also in the context of international crime (cf. chapters 5 and
6). (excerpt)
