About-

Restorative Justice was a term and concept largely unused before the mid-1970s. Wayne Northey happened to be in on the ground floor of facilitating its worldwide adoption as a challenge to Western retributive justice systems, ultimately to violent responses to conflict domestically and internationally. The most replicated early model of Restorative Justice, based on the well-known “Elmira Case,” was a Canadian first, initially dubbed Victim Offender Reconciliation Project (VORP). The author became its second director in 1977. The term “mediation” later displaced the more religious word, “reconciliation,” as the model spread outside Christian moorings; and “program” displaced the initially more tentative “project.”

At seminary, Northey had learned to think through one’s vocation theologically. He began in that vein, writing and publishing on this profound call for a systemic “paradigm shift,” and has been at it ever since. This publication is volume 1 of a series of his collected writings, of which two additional volumes may be found online. Two or three further volumes are projected.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“I have gently urged Wayne, over the years, to compile and thread together many of the articles he has written on restorative justice (and they are legion). I have no doubt that those who read and inwardly digest the articles chosen by Wayne for this unique collection and book will be generously rewarded by each read and reread. Certainly the way Wayne immerses the curious reader in the trying issues will refocus the way justice is often defined and understood. I do, therefore, heartily recommend this exceptional book to the reader with an open mind: their understanding of justice may never be the same again.”

—Ron Dart, University of the Fraser Valley
