Restorative justice is a response to crime that engages primary stakeholders: victims, offenders, and communities. The following five questions, posed by restorative justice theorist and practitioner Howard Zehr, frame this chapter: Who's been hurt, what are their needs, whose obligations are these, who has a stake in this situation, and what is the appropriate process to involve stakeholders in an effort to put things right? The chapter looks to the future and uses Zehr's questions to explore the many ways that restorative justice policy and initiatives can meet the needs of victims, offenders, and communities.

Keywords:   restorative justice, Howard Zehr, needs, harms, obligations of victims, offenders, communities
