In this document, Ron Claassen, director of the Center for Peacemaking and Conflict Studies at Fresno Pacific University, reports on a trip he and his wife made to Thailand at the end of 2003 into early 2004. They went to participate in the defense of a doctoral dissertation by Angkana Boonsit at Thammasat University in Bangkok. Boonsit’s dissertation was on restorative justice in Thailand, with a particular emphasis on the use of restorative justice in cases of domestic violence. Claassen sketches Boonsit’s work for her dissertation, meetings he had with Thai officials concerning restorative justice, and potential directions for restorative justice in Thailand.
