"Minding the Gap between Restorative Justice, Therapeutic Jurisprudence and Global Indigenous wisdom" . Please see for call for chapters @


Deadline subject to extension.

We are aiming to make this book a landmark one on understanding  application of 'indigenous wisdom' for resolving legal issues with the help of RJ and TJ prescribed methods. We are looking for chapters where contributors may suggest the best possible ways to achieve this, may have practiced and achieved positive results. Kindly look into the introduction and aim of the book proposal to know about the scope of this book.


At this time, we are seeking contributors from the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Africa. Additional contributors from Latin America and the United States, Australia, and New Zealand are welcome.

Have questions: contact me Dr. Marta Vides Saade, co-editor mvides@ramapo.edu

The intent of this book is to mind the gap in which differences create challenges or obstacles to either RJ, TJ, or both, and recommend approaches that would move that gap to a place of transformation that is not merely illusory, or "the Nirvana story" described by Dr. Kathleen Daley. It seeks to avoid what Diné Justice Raymond D. Austin calls "over-extended borrowing." The book seeks to give authentic voice to practitioners and theorists whose work originates in organic or indigenous conflict resolution. The voices that will be privileged come from inside traditions that are embedded in world views and cultures that support the transformational potential of RJ and TJ from within distinctive models. The purpose of this publication is: (1) to raise awareness of the diversity of approaches to dispute resolution from the deep perspective of their foundations, and (2) to understand the challenges that arise in practical application of RJ and TJ models when using principles disconnected from their foundation, and (3) to offer ways to bridge the gap so that it is no longer an obstacle, but a source of transformation.

The articles in this volume will provide a review of indigenous, organic, dispute resolution models practiced throughout various regions of the world in their most traditional forms - for example - local, village, tribal -- least influenced by dominant state models, even if practiced concurrently. The contributing scholars would write to mine the cultural, metaphysical, definitional, and other multiplicities that are normative in those models. Challenges that arise from using a mixture of indigenous models with sometimes incompatible state adopted models will be articulated. Approaches that might close those gaps that challenge the adoption of a robust system of either restorative justice, or therapeutic jurisprudence systems will be considered.
