This is an excellent discussion. I think it is quite relevant for anyone interested in knowledge mobilization and policy applications. Also it brings out the challenges to have narratives that embrace both the victim and offender perspectives. Lastly the discussion around hate crimes is very timely. Finally the model of sequential Circles is very important for those looking to wade into the polarization of groups and how to bridge this.

    Thank you, Rick. Appreciate the comments. So many excellent people and organizations doing restorative justice around the globe.
    Now the challenge is to apply it broadly and to move into the mainstream of the public square.
