Restorative justice provides important insights and groundbreaking efforts to transform and localize
intervention in response to problems of crime, harm and conflict. The contributions to this special
issue focus on restorative justice as a way of addressing crime and crime-related concerns to the
greatest extent possible within community organizational contexts (i.e., workplaces, schools,
universities, and residential programs for delinquents). The authors demonstrate how restorative
practices have implications for community building and organizational reform based generally on a
learning theory of cultural change. (authors’ abstract)
