John Ivoro describes the work of the Ivani/Saraga Dispute Settlement Committee. Ivoro and others were trained as mediators by the Peace Foundation Melanesia and used these skills to help people in their community to resolve conflicts. He descibes the processes used and the needs for variations to fit the cultural context of the different groups living in the area.
