“Victim-Offender Mediation: The State of the Art.”

Price, Marty D.
June 4, 2015

Source: (1996) VOMA Quarterly 7 (3).

Price sketches a history of victim-offender mediation from the 1970s (in Kitchener, Ontario) to the time of his writing. He points out that victim-offender mediation is not inherently restorative; it can be designed and practiced to be only punitive. Hence, Price contends for mediation that is restorative in nature and purpose.
