In countries such as Fiji where coninmunity and national conflict have not been dealt with in healthy and non-violent ways, and justice seems secondary to politicised power and control, diverse individuals and communities are in great need of healing, where harms need to he acknowledged and responsibility admitted in order to remove the guilt and shame that prevents Fiji from moving forward in a positive, healing way. This article will look at teaching restorative justice to minority communities in order to deal with conflict by allowing the victims to participate fully in the process. (author’s abstract).
