MEDIA REVIEWS

"Mahan (Univ. of Central Florida) draws from the reports of conciliators, her own extensive on-the-ground observations, and an extensive cache of legal documents to provide a primer on restorative justice. Her analysis of the operations of the Colombian Conciliators in Equity program identifies the combined force of governmental agencies and citizen groups in integrating a restorative program into Colombia's criminal justice system effectively . . . The work is an insightful, carefully written study on a highly specialized topic that would be a valuable addition to academic libraries with strong holdings in Latin American and/or criminal justice studies . . . Highly recommended." - Choice

"The search for restorative justice takes on new meaning as we watch the growing number of violent conflicts around the world. Sue Mahan has provided us with a remarkable insight into Colombia's attempt to find such justice after years of violent upheaval . . . Her underlying message is one of hope in the deep human impulse to protect life and to restore justice." - Steve Vetter, President of Partners of the Americas

"Sue Mahan's research on Equity Conciliation in Colombia is an important contribution to the field and highlights the need to continue supporting these courageous community volunteers who are making a difference for peace and access to justice in their country." - Julia Roig, President of Partners for Democratic Change and Honorary Founding Member of ACCE
