The Kastom System of Dispute Resolution in Vanuatu

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    This paper is a short report of the progress of my doctoral research into the indigenous, non-state system of dispute management in Vanuatu, which is called the kastom system for the purposes of the study. This paper will discuss the research questions the study is based on, the operation of the kastom system generally, two of the leading principles of the kastom system, the challenges facing the kastom system today, the relationship of the kastom system with the state system and finally the problems with that relationship.1
