This chapter reflects on how living heritage can help to prevent and resolve disputes. By way of diverse examples, learners see how communities have created over centuries highly elaborated systems and local social practices to respond to specific social and environmental contexts, to help regulate access to shared spaces and natural resources, to reduce inequalities as well as to enable people to live peacefully together. The cultural relevance of these systems and practices to enhance dialogue, conflict resolution and reconciliation in everyday life are raised. What is the role local systems and local practices of conflict resolution could play in everyday life? How can they maintain peace and security in an inclusive way that is accepted by the people concerned?
