‘Pasifikation’ of the Resolution Institute (RI) Model of Mediation
with Helenā Kaho and Dr Michael Fusi Ligaliga
We are all familiar with the RI mediation model. But how does this model fit within Pacific milieu?
In our session, we will unpack and deconstruct the RI model from a Pacific worldview by introducing key Pacific values and belief systems that are important to consider when using the RI model of mediation.
The session will be interactive, there will be opportunities to role play, participate in collective talanoa (discussions).
If you are currently working or intend to work with Pacific people within the ADR space, this session is for you.
