This paper analyzes the decision-making process for negotiating reparative contracts with offenders in a restorative justice model. Based on a content analysis of videotaped Com-munity Reparative Board meetings with probationers in Vermont, this paper (a) defines restoration as a core concept in restorative justice; (b) examines how boards identify harm to victims and community; (c) how they identify strategies to repair identified harm; (d) how often repair becomes a line item in reparative contracts; and (e) offers in-terpretation for situations in which harm is not identified and/or not repaired.
