So the Melanesian people in Papua have a specific way of resolving conflicts. Practical traits the concept of conflict resolution of the Melanesian people in Papua such as: Sit together both groups in the fight and talk (negotiations), find and find solutions together in a peaceful situation. They greatly appreciate others and their existence is both existential and essential because they are substantially as equally human.
