Editor of this second collection of papers presented at a 2001 conference in Leuven, Belgium, on restorative justice, Lode Walgrave also provides an introduction to the collection. In the introduction, he points to several key factors that have fostered the growth of restorative justice in recent decades, and he sketches a series of conferences on restorative justice by the International Network for Research on Restorative Justice for Juveniles, of which this conference is the fifth. This leads to an explanation of the conference theme, Ã¢Â€Âœrepositioning restorative justice,Ã¢Â€? and an overview of the main subjects of the book itself.
