Mediating conflicts thus takes on the form of reconciling divergent interests in order to maintain the physical existence and spiritual well-being of the entire community. One of the key functions of traditional conflict management is to structure the actors’ actions. 72 Regarding the first element, cognition organises thinking, introduces meaning and structures behaviour. It thus governs the conduct of the mediators. Different from Western, modern societies, in non-modern societies people think mainly in global, holistic terms, that is, all elements of a situation are captured simultaneously under the shape of a whole that is non-fractional.

The objective is restorative justice, that is, to restore social relationships and harmony. By contrast, the punishment of the offender, as practised in the Western punitive justice systems, would be understood as a further injury to the community. 71 Traditional conflict management does not understand a dispute to exist between two parties, but between the culprit and the whole community, that is, harm has been done to the whole group.
