Recently I was part of a team of three trainers who prepared and delivered a short conflict resolution training program to Peace Monitors of the Solomon Islands National Peace Council. This followed a request for training by the Council to the Australian Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies of the University of Queensland, where I am a doctoral candidate. As part of their role in the areas to which they are posted, Peace Monitors are required to deal with a variety of conflicts, many of which are related to or inflected through what is locally termed the ‘tension’ that began in the late 1990s.
