The Kennesaw State University Center for Conflict Management is hosting an International Conference on Indigenous Conflict Management Strategies April 20-21, 2012.

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. However, a critical assessment of global conflict trends indicates that since World War II there have been more local (intra-state) conflicts than interstate or global conflicts.

Presentations Include:

  • Felix Chinwe Asogwa, Enugu State University of Science and Technology
    “Women in Indigenous Conflict Management: An Analysis of the Role of “Umu-Ada” in Conflict Management in the Igbo Society of South-East Nigeria”
  • Kurmanali Matikeev, Osh State University, Kyrgyzstan
    “Historical memory of ethnos’ and its role in prevention of ethnic conflicts”
  • Silk Ugwu Ogbu, Pan-African University
    “Comparative Analysis of the Traditional Institutions in Conflict Management in Igbo and Yoruba Societies in Nigeria”
