Resolving Conflict in Solomon Islands: The Women for Peace Approach

AUTHOR(S)

Conflict in Solomon Islands is not a new phenomenon. Its regular occurrence has given the people knowledge and skills to resolve conflict in a manner that is fair and responsive to their culture and environment. However, the current so-called ethnic tension conflict is too big and life-threatening and involves modern weapons. The roles that women have played in the present conflict can be traced back to their hands-on skills and traditional knowledge, to biblical doctrines regarding responses to conflict, and to their love for their nation. In fact, they have expertise in their own right: love, culture and Christianity have equipped women to respond appropriately to tension.
