Following the terrorist attacks of 11 September 2001 in the United States, some asked Maria Cuzzo (lawyer, teacher, and practitioner of mediation and conflict resolution) about the possibilities of a mediation or restorative justice response to the events. Cuzzo therefore re-examines basic principles of restorative justice and tests their applicability in light of those attacks. Out of this she develops and states what she calls the “code of the peaceful warrior” rooted in restorative justice values and a vigorous commitment to working for peace.
