The study found that 79% of those assigned to peacemaking completed the program successfully. In addition, the study describes how the program was devised and implemented; what takes place during peacemaking sessions; and how participants and stakeholders each described their experiences and perceptions. Overall, defendants, victims and stakeholders considered the peacemaking program to have a positive impact on the participants and the community.
