The starting point for this paper is that restorative justice is based on the idea of examining and reconciling different claims on justice and different perspectives on undesired (criminal) events through discourse. Terms such as 'dialogue', 'deliberative debate', 'conference', occur repeatedly in discussions and descriptions of restorative justice, but these words remain largely unexamined, they are the taken-for-granted dimensions of restorative justice. This paper focuses on the 'discourse' of restorative justice; the discussion rests on three main arguments.
