A Bird That Flies With Two Wings: Kastom and state justice systems in Vanuatu

Miranda Forsyth

This book poses a series of highly specific questions about the operation of the kastom system and its relationship with the state system. In addition to investigating the current relationship between the state and kastom systems and its benefits and disadvantages, it poses normative questions about how a more constructive interaction between the two could be supported. It concludes that, despite the very different natures of the two systems, it is possible for them to work together in a mutually beneficial and supportive manner, but this requires changes to the structural relationship between them, as well as adaptations made within each system.
