Indigenous conflict management and resolution strategies—utilizing local actors and traditional community-based judicial and legal decision-making mechanisms to manage and resolve conflicts within or between communities—have not been given sufficient attention. Instead, most researchers have been focused on conventional Western approaches. However, a critical assessment of global conflict trends indicates that since World War II there have been more intra-state conflicts than interstate or global conflicts. Even when considered global, every conflict is local inasmuch as local people suffer the ramifications. Examples of such conflicts abound in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Latin America, etc. Solutions to conflicts must therefore be local for application, relevance and sustainability, and replicated globally in similar situations.
