(p.115) Chapter 6 Māori Dispute Resolution
Mediating Across Difference

Carwyn Jones

University of Hawai'i Press

This chapter considers key dimensions of Māori conflict resolution and how they differ from orthodox Western approaches. It examines the ongoing negotiation of Indigenous–Settler relations through the Waitangi Tribunal. The tribunal, a permanent commission of inquiry established in 1975, hears claims arising out of Māori concerns about implementation of the Treaty of Waitangi, originally signed with representatives of the British Crown in 1840. In an analysis that resonates with that of the previous chapter, this chapter shows that tribunal processes have been able to combine Māori and Anglo-European conflict resolution approaches. Such blending may even hold promise for mediating across difference in other settings.
