Mediating the Space Between: Negotiating legitimacy for cross-cultural mediations in Australia

One of the most significant challenges faced by Australian mediators is the delivery of mediation in a way that respects the rich complexities and culture of Indigenous Australians who seek ‘contemporary’ mediation as a means to assist them in negotiating agreements and resolution of conflict. Whilst Indigenous Australians have a long history of traditional conflict resolution, few non-Indigenous mediators embrace this knowledge in a mutually respectful way.

This interactive presentation aims to challenge the normative definition of cross-cultural mediation. Recognising Jurisdictional Convergence, we as practitioners are challenged to recognise the complexities of the conflict context and empower the different systems of decision-making.

This is the work of negotiating legitimacy.

Throughout this session we will explore the following:

  • Cross-cultural Conflict Context
  • Indicators of Legitimacy
  • Jurisdictional Convergence

The presentation aims to encourage and challenge you to consider what it means to facilitate cross-cultural decision making within the conflict landscape.

Introduction by Deborah Lockhart, CEO of the Australian Disputes Centre.

Followed by networking wine & cheese.

Eligibility for CPD/CLE: 1.5 points
