„CONFLICT ANALYSIS AND RESOLUTION: CHALLENGES FOR THE POSTMODERN WORLD“
„KONFLIKTANALYSEN UND –(AUF)LÖSUNG(EN): HERAUSFORDERUNGEN IN EINER POSTMODERNEN WELT“
Current European and general trends of characteristics of conflict, the organisation of relationships, depth structures of conflicts, their roots and solidification tendencies will be discussed in this seminar. The emphasis will, however, lie in the close analysis and the possibilities to apply the 3-Column-Model: Conflict-Analysis, the research of the reasons and conditions of conflicts and working out conflictinterventions on an individual, social, international and global level. Models for measures to prevent conflicts, conflict management, conflict (re)solutions, and conflict transformations will be introduced by using virulent conflicts. Hereby, the focus will especially be brought upon all kinds of strategies of 3rd parties (Confrontational and/or Collaborative, "Negative Peace" and/or "Positive Peace" Orientations, "Track 1" and/or Multi-Track Actors and Processes).
