Twelve articles focus on rationales, case studies, and assessment of neighborhood justice centers. Topics include the decentralizing the criminal justice system; dispute resolution outside the courts; the implications of linkages between social organizations and dispute processing for certain reforms; the developments in minor dispute processing of the Neighborhood Justice Centers Field Test in Kansas City, Atlanta, and Los Angeles; the mediation component of the Dorchester Urban Court (MA); the Brooklyn Dispute Center (NY); the notion of ‘success’ in the neighborhood justice movement; criticisms and important questions about mediation; and the major assumptions and problems of the neighborhood justice center movement.
