transformative justice is confused as a form of mediation by the uninitiated, which annoys the practitioners and proponents of transformative justice. since mediation is more well known and there are enough similarities, the comparison is obvious for people, but it’s different. it’s much more involved, long term and mentally, emotionally, and time consuming. it aims to become one of the central aspects of a community. it will burnout those more willing and compliant with it, while not affecting those who will not comply with it from the start. since it operates parallel to existing justice system, it will default to that when it becomes overwhelmed.
