Welcome to the second Special Issue of the Internet Journal of Restorative Justice (IJRJ). The first Special Issue focused on celebrating five years since the journal’s establishment. It is with great pride and indeed honour that I am writing this Editorial. Eight years after its inception, the journal has established itself as the leading, international peer reviewed publication dedicated to restorative justice. There is still much to learn about restorative justice, and our publication aims to bridge a gap in academic, policy and practice knowledge. Since our establishment, the primary aims of the journal remain the publication of scholarly and peer-reviewed articles of the highest standard from various areas of expertise including but not limited to restorative practices in schools, neighbourhoods, organisations and businesses, family matters and (youth) care, the criminal and juvenile justice systems, prisons, and the community.
