Room: MA 744
International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR)
UN, EU and governments send civilians to conflict zones to alleviate and mitigate disputes. Instead of violence better to listen to the feelings and needs of the opponents in order to restore the connection between them. Then we can use our minds to find a solution to the problem everyone could agree. This method enables a Moderator to achieve a peaceful settlement of conflict in a group setting. It avoids huge demonstration provoking the authorities. It can be a civilian alternative to a military intervention. Roleplay on a real situation will be proposed to the participants of the workshop.
