2018 International Conference Videos
Indigenous conflict resolution practices have been neglected for a long time in our conflict resolution training and curriculum design.
Due to the influence of the Western system of education, the legal systems in most countries that have a significant number of indigenous populations are unfortunately Western.
At ICERMediation, we believe that relegating indigenous ways of resolving conflict to a state of inertia is not only morally wrong, but a naïve policy that encourages cultural genocide.
Indigenous Conflict Resolution Systems and Processes
To start a global conversation on this phenomenon, we decided to make indigenous conflict resolution systems and processes the central theme for our 5th Annual International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding.
The conference was held at Queens College, City University of New York, 65-30 Kissena Blvd, Queens, NY 11367.
Participants came from many countries around the world.
In the edited volume, Traditional Systems and Practices of Conflict Resolution, you will find research findings that were presented at the conference.
The conference also inspired the Virtual Indigenous Kingdoms project.
Below, you can watch the video recordings of the conference sessions, including the keynote address, distinguished speeches, and panel discussions.
