Conflict Resolution: The Way Forward

Publication | January 2023

Conflict resolution is an integral part of social justice and social transformation. 

Key Points
  • Alternative dispute resolution enables social justice and workable solutions by recognizing mutual interdependence.
  • The paradigm shift from the ethic of justice to the ethic of care enables taking responsibility for action.
  • Moving from destructive reactions to constructive potential exploration results in a “joint struggle” to reach consensus.
  • Humanizing the problem leads to the shift from “I versus you” to “I and us”.
  • A meta model addressing the tasks, relationships, environment, engagement, and values is possible only by systems change.
