Here, we will highlight some of the changes over time that have altered the scope of victim offender mediation. We will also point to some of the core elements of the process that have remained quite constant even during its evolution. We will summarize the empirical research conducted in numerous US jurisdictions and in other nations regarding its implementation. And we will underscore continuing issues that will likely affect its ongoing evolution. (excerpt).
