Justice for Grassroots and Peace-loving people: the PNG Village Courts and Land Mediation Secretariat in collaboration with UNICEF PNG awarded a contract to the Melanesian Institute Research Department to conduct an evaluative research on Village Courts in rural and urban communities of the Highlands Region.

Village Court is a unique justice seeking and delivery in the world. It resolves conflicts on the basis of customary laws and attends to the justice needs of the grassroots both in rural and urban areas. The research team is being inducted to the working of village courts, designing research methodology and validating research tools for the actual fieldwork in the bush.
