Posted on Feb 28 2012 under Previous Programs, Victim-Offender

Is it possible to turn murderers into peacemakers? Is it possible to find world peace? Is peacemaking just a happy thought or a hard-nosed, pragmatic approach to intractable conflicts?

In our Restorative Justice series, I will be speaking with Doug Noll, internationally renowned mediator, author, and speaker talk about restorative justice and how it is vastly different from the criminal justice system.
