||The research shows that the Xiahe Tibetan disputes are resolved by both the “customary law” system and the “state law” system. The “customary law” system includes "group fights", "pluralistic civil mediation", "eat Curse", etc. while the “state law” system represents itself mainly as litigation. However, the types of dispute resolution are formed because of the difference in cause, cultural background, scope of usage, mode of operation, the actual results, prospects in development and etc. Hence, in the process of the Tibetan dispute resolution, conflict and collision in Xiahe County never stop though the types of dispute resolution are so called "competitive coexistence", which is actually the root cause of the chaos in terms of dispute resolution.
In addition to the introduction and the conclusion, the entire research is divided into three parts:
The first part (Chapters 1 and 2) describes the current situation and puts forward the research problems/research questions. It presents the diverse facts of the Xiahe Tibetan dispute resolutions and their causes, interprets culturally the Xiahe Tibetan dispute resolution process, including important and typical Xiahe Tibetan dispute cases such as "group fights”, "pluralistic civil mediation", "eat curse" and "litigation" , etc.
The second part (Chapter 3) is about the analysis of the problems. It is examined from two perspectives, the "customary law" system and the “state law" system. The problems existing in the Xiahe Tibetan dispute resolution process such as "group fights”, "pluralistic civil mediation”, and "Eat curse"in the "customary law" system are carefully analyzed. So also are the problems and the litigation in the "state law" system.
The third part (Chapter4, chapter 5) is about countermeasures and suggestions. It considers both the self-improvement and the development of different types of dispute resolution and how "coordination and interaction" can be carried out between different knowledge systems of dispute resolution.
