Abstract

This research delves into the role played by customary institutions in resolving inter-religious harmony conflicts through non-judicial means. Conflicts involving religious differences often require a sensitive and culturally grounded approach. Customary institutions, with their rich traditions and social norms, often effectively mediate tensions and facilitate dialogue among disputing parties. This research explores conflict resolution practices that customary institutions have successfully implemented and their positive impact on preserving inter-religious harmony. This research provides valuable insights into how cultural values and customary institutions can contribute to creating harmonious solutions in Indonesia. Non-judicial approaches, such as mediation, conciliation, and negotiation, have proven to be more effective than the judicial path in resolving religious conflicts because they prioritize dialogue, cooperation, and mutual understanding.
