Responding to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. September 15, 2001 Fresno Bee article by Ron Claassen.
Ron was invited to be one of two guest speakers for the First Restorative Justice Conference in Israel on May 1 and 2, 2002. This is a report of his trip and the conference.
Ron was a member of Angkana Boonsit's doctoral dissertation committee, traveling to Thailand for her defense. This is a report of that trip with photos. The trip included visits with the Directors General of the Department of Corrections and Department of Probation. He was also lecturer at the Grand Seminar. Report with photos attached (1.4 MB).
Ron was invited to St. Paul's University, Manilla, to provide several lectures introducing Restorative Justice and together with Roxanne, to do a Restorative Justice and Discipline training for selected administrators and faculty and a few others invited by the University. The report includes additional experiences and personal reflections.
Ron and Roxanne traveled to Paraguay in February 2016 to do training. They did two 3-day training events, one 4-day event and four 1-day consultations with several school districts. In addition they did some sightseeing and visited some Mennonite colonies in the Chaco. This report includes photos.
Ron and Roxanne traveled to Germany and Switzerland to do restorative justice training and to meet with schools interested in DTR. Since that time, a DTR Handbook has been translated into German and two schools have been implementing DTR. The reason for the DTR Handbook is to assist those who are interested in promoting RJ in School throughout the schools in Germany.
