The book forms part of the Peace Psychology Book Series by Spring, Series Ed.: Christie, Daniel J. ISSN: 2197-5779.
Despite the clear connections between psychology, restorative justice, and peace across national and institutional contexts, there has been little direct engagement between the field of peace psychology and the growing theory, implementation, and research of restorative justice. This edited Volume will explicitly build a bridge between peace psychology and restorative justice.
Building on the work of peace psychologists such as Galtung and restorativists, the editors will work with leading international expert authors to cover both negative and positive peace across levels. By negative peace, we refer to harmony in relationships, extending from within individuals to international relations. In this way, restorative justice and its impact on psychosocial processes can be understood both to prevent violence and restore peaceful relations. By positive peace, we refer to the pursuit of equity and the construction of horizontal, inclusive, and just dynamics between individuals, groups, and societies. Restorative justice can promote positive peace through its connection fostering dialogue, empathy, forgiveness, and other key psychological elements of peace.
