Estrada-Hollenbeck seeks to identify processes that resolve conflicts in a just manner and lead to reconciliation, not merely to temporary suspension of violence.

Her argument is that conflict resolution processes that promote restorative justice rather than legalistic justice are more likely to lead to reconciliation.
