In March 2003 Marian Liebmann was invited to provide assistance with restorative justice initiatives in South Africa and Serbia. Here she reports on her trips and the restorative justice efforts in each country. In South Africa Liebmann spoke at a prison conference and at a Quaker meeting. She also met a number of people involved in restorative justice work in Cape Town. Then in Serbia Liebmann helped to train criminal justice professionals in victim offender mediation. She ends this article with reflections on how these two different countries are grappling with similar problems.
