“Mediating witchcraft and other challenges: traditional conflict resolution in the Central African Republic”
Presented by Judith Herrmann
After finishing her Master of Conflict and Dispute Resolution earlier this year, Judith spent 10 weeks in the Central African Republic for a research project on the formal and informal dispute resolution system. Based on her analysis she developed a draft mediation manual which will be used to train Central African village chiefs in the field of mediation and reconciliation.
Judith will talk about the challenges of her project and the most interesting findings regarding traditional dispute resolution processes in Africa.
