Conference theme ‘Mediating Cultures of the Pacific and Asia’

The University of the South Pacific’s (USP) Pacific Institute of Advanced Studies in Development and Governance (PIAS-DG) has announced that the third Asia Pacific Mediation Forum (APMF) Conference will take place June 19th-30th on the USP campus in Suva, Fij. The Conference includes two days of pre-conference workshops and three days of conference presentations, panels and symposia. Two accredited basic-mediation courses will be held early, June 19st-23rd, the week before the primary conference activities begin.

The theme of the conference will be ‘Mediating Cultures of the Pacific and Asia’. Chief John Momis, former Governor of Bougainville and ‘the father of the Papua New Guinea’s constitution’, has agreed to give one of the keynote addresses.

The Conference and workshops are being held as a contribution toward capacity development in mediation skills in the Pacific and Asia and to promote constructive conflict resolution practices. The conference will highlight mediation methodologies that have evolved in the Pacific and will build a network of mediation practitioners throughout this region, Asia and beyond. Conference outcomes are expected to enhance democratic processes by increasing civil society’s as well as government institution’s capacity for peaceful dialogue and cooperation. The Conference is an initiative of PIAS-DG’s Peace and Conflict Studies Program.

Complete conference registration and accommodation information can be found on the conference website. The programme will be uploaded soon. Those interested in participating in the conference may contact Laura Seurynck at seurynck_l@usp.ac.fj or Professor Graham Hassall at Hassall_g@usp.ac.fj for additional queries.
