Community Mediation by Wi Pere Mita
Understanding the Maori world view is integral to resolving disputes that involve individuals from this community. In this webinar, Wi Pere will provide an overview of the Māori culture, customs and practices, and will discuss how these influence the dispute resolution processes involving Māori people.
The presentation seeks to:
- Increase understanding of the Maori world view and Maori DR methods
- Equip mediators with the tools to assist Maori clients in a culturally appropriate way
- Encourage mediators to apply Maori dispute resolution techniques, where appropriate
Join this session to explore traditional Māori dispute resolution methods and application of these in a contemporary context.
