In 2010 Yuendumu was wracked by conflict. The Yuendumu Mediation and Justice Committee (YM&JC) is an innovative, responsive and highly effective Indigenous designed and driven initiative that has succeeded in restoring stability and harmony to the community. It has played a powerful role in breaking cycles of disadvantage, distress and suffering caused by unmanaged community conflict and is a positive and compelling example of the drive, vision and commitment of Aboriginal people in Central Australia to take control and responsibility for matters in their community and their effectiveness and skill in doing so.
A cost benefit analysis (CBA) showed that YM&JC returned economic benefits that far exceeded its economic costs. This forum explores the importance of conflict management as the foundation for community resilience, the effectiveness of CBA as an evaluation tool and how the impact and influence of the YM&JC CBA is a continuing thing.
