In September, 1998 the Executive Committee of ISPAC established a working group of
Resource Committee No. 1, Victims, and requested a draft report on Restorative Justice
Issues. This report is a brief synopsis of the literature and materials that have come to the
attention of the Committee. The materials are extensive and there are a significant number of
individual scholars and practitioners, groups and organizations devoted to the advancement of
Restorative Justice Principles. The entire content of this report is based on the works and
materials supplied by these individuals and groups and is used freely. (excerpt)
