Summary/Abstract: In this article, the author deals with the basic theoretical assumptions and discussions on the practical use of restorative justice.

There is no unique standpoint of the concept of restorative justice, and many authors define this concept by listing certain activities with respect of standards and principles. The experiences of different countries which apply the restorative justice process are invaluable. The author provides examples of some experiences and doubts regarding the restorative justice process in the American judicial system, emphasizing the values of the restorative justice process.
