RJ Article Bala, Merita and Gjoka, Rasim and Paus, Karen Kristin. Building a domestic and international partnership for implementing RJ
In 1999, restorative justice efforts in Albania partnered with efforts in Norway, largely in a financial sense but also in an information-sharing way. The two countries being substantially different, certain accommodations had to be made. There was a need for time and reliable interpreters so information could be presented clearly and understood thoroughly. The two organizations met not as teachers and students but as colleagues, creating an equal give-and-take in observing how the other organization managed restorative justice, primarily mediation. The report includes both the Norwegian and the Albanian perspectives on the partnership. Fundamentally, they both agree that the differences between their countries complemented the work they were doing rather than hindered it.

RJ Article Bronebakk, Kristin Bolgen. Alternative Sanctions and Measures (with Special Attention to Conditional Release)
My operational definition of “Alternative sanctions and measures” is: “anything that replaces prison with something else”. I will also briefly comment on community efforts to prevent young people from embarking on a criminal career. Of particular importance are the Mediation Boards: channelling cases away from the courts to be handled in the local community based on the concept of restorative justice. The Mediation Boards constitute a separate system not under the Correctional Services. (author's abstract)

Ted Wachtel on Nils Christie's plenary at European Forum
from Restorative Practices Blog: Today I attended the first day of the European Forum for Restorative Justice Conference that’s being held in Helsinki, Finland. It was nice to hear Nils Christie give a plenary speech. Nils Christie is now an 84-year-old emeritus professor from Norway whose famous article, “Conflict As Property,” defined the whole idea that governments and courts and lawyers steal our conflicts, and that we should have a right and an opportunity to resolve our own conflicts.

RJ Article Dale, Geir and Hydle, Ida. Challenging the Evaluation of Norwegian Restorative Justice Experiences"
This article describes the various restorative justice practices in Norway in which we have played significant roles, and then proposes a model for evaluation based upon these. In so doing it makes a case both for restorative justice and for evaluation as critical for assessing the value of restorative justice and for learning and improvement. The paper concludes with a short analysis of an example of evaluatory research applied to a particular restorative justice project. (author's abstract)
