This chapter focuses on both restorative justice and social work as practiced in a post-conflict, developing country. An in-depth description of modern Liberia and the types and levels of problems it is facing are detailed in order to highlight the unique challenges that social workers and peace workers face in working toward rebuilding that country and promoting social justice policies. Social work and restorative justice processes are presented and examined in terms of current impact, potential for change, and barriers that are being confronted.
