Condification Conference July 2018 (Day 1 Session 3)

This is the last session for first day.

Many communities across the Pacific islands region write down their own ‘customary’ or ‘local’ rules and regulations in the form of what are called customary or community laws, by-laws, constitutions or even ordinances (referred to collectively as ‘community laws’). This has a long history in many places, particularly during the colonial period, but has intensified in recent years and is taking different forms in different places. A number of national and provincial governments in the region have also recently initiated efforts to document and even codify local customary laws.
