Conflict resolution in the family :-)

Hari Srinivas

In any conflict situation, different people behave differently - depending on the situation, their view of themselves, their ability to contribute to the situation, and the behaviour/participation of others in the conflict.

A simulation exercise highlighted these behaviour patterns. Three urban stakeholders - the local government, business and industry, and NGOs and the community - attempted to resolve a potential conflict situation (a unilateral decision of the local government to build a waste incinerator) through dialogue, debate and discussion.

The objective of this slide show is to present, albeit humorously, the different 'roles' played by the participants during the simulation exercise.

Based on observations during the training session on "Leadership for the Local Environment" Simulation Exercise held at the United Nations University, Tokyo, Japan from 8 E9 July 2000
