Two Way Learning & Culturally Appropriate Mediation Training in Remote Communities


This article considers the outcomes of mediation training in the remote Northern Territory communities of Gunbalanya/Oenpelli and Lajamanu in 2012, in collaboration with the NT Government. The preliminary outcomes indicate that providing mediation training to people in remote communities has the potential to lead to a reduction in long term disputes and encourage the creation of local dispute resolution initiatives. Additionally, the project team?s experience in running the project adds to knowledge about best practice methodologies for delivery of mediation training in remote Indigenous communities.
