Dispute Resolution…

Dispute resolution has often been alarmingly violent:

  • Gazi (Mauritanian dialect): a plundering raid in which at least forty camels are employed.
  • Falurombolas (Hungarian): the destruction of villages.
  • Schrecklichkeit (German): a deliberate policy of terrorising non-combatants.
  • Edsabil (Maguindanaon, Phillipines): to fight until death for the cause of Allah.
  • Nuulone (Anywa, Nilo-Saharan): a victory dance with rifles after a war.
