“In this chapter I want to focus specifically on whether restorative justice has anything to contribute in the search for solutions to the scourge of religious violence and terrorism. This, we will see, is a very difficult question to answer. Before venturing to do so, we need to be clear on what we mean by ‘religious terrorism’ and why it is such a difficult phenomenon to combat.” (excerpt)
