In December 2006, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime published the Handbook on Restorative Justice Programmes. One in a series of tools developed to assist governments with criminal justice reforms, the Handbook offers practical information on the concept of restorative justice, the types of restorative processes used throughout the world, and how to create and manage those programmes.
