This chapter analyzes in depth one particular practice of political reconciliation, punishment. It begins with a brief description of how practices of punishment have evolved since the Nuremberg Trials. It then sets forth the idea of restorative punishment, a justification for punishment that reflects the ethic of political reconciliation. The chapter gives content to restorative punishment by showing how it achieves an array of primary and secondary restorations. From the standpoint of restorative punishment, it explores examples of institutions that have sought to deliver punishment for major human rights violators.
