This book consists of essays from leading authorities in the field of restorative justice. The essays derive from papers and discussions at the Fourth International Conference on Restorative Justice for Juveniles – “Restorative Justice as a Challenge for the New Millenium.â€? The conference was held in Tübingen, Germany, 1-4 October 2000.The purpose of the book is to explore theoretical foundations underlying and shaping restorative justice principles, practices, and future directions. The chapters cover a wide range of fundamental questions about the core essence of restorative justice, conceptual pitfalls, and the potential for integrating traditional models of peacemaking and healing into modern justice systems. The book includes biographical notes on the contributors (who come chiefly from Europe, North America, Australia, and New Zealand), a list of figures and tables in each chapter, and a detailed index.
