PERSPECTIVES ON TRADITIONAL AFRICAN AND CHINESE METHODS OF CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Pre-colonial African societies, such as Nigeria have had conflict resolution techniques which are unique and peculiar to individual communities and are imbedded in the different cultues from time immemorial. This situation was however radically altered with the imposition of colonial system of justice administration that is endogenous and foreign to Africa. In the same vein, the Chinese traditional techniques of conflict resolution witnessed alterations, modifications, and changes over time in their historical experience. Despite these variations and or transformation in traditional techniques of conflict resolution in Africa and China, the techniques have continously been accepted and accessed in the management of social interactions. In fact, these societies have transmitted the techniques from generation to generation through both documented and undocumented means such as storytelling, proverbs, parables, maxims, or pithy sayings.
