In this paper, we view the unfolding discourse of what is referred to as the Peacemaking and Peacekeeping approach. It is a discourse purporting to examine the fundamental assumptions, practices, and truth claims of both criminology and the criminal justice system. The paper begins by providing an overview of what we take to be a central concern currently confronting the CJS and the remedies proposed by peacemaking. We conclude by posing a series of questions which this approach must confront if it is to retain its integrity as a viable alternative to the contemporary approaches it seeks to critique.
