This 3 day workshop offers a unique learning experience by exploring the role that culture plays in conflict and its resolution. Participants will compare and apply various approaches to conflict resolution that are grounded in effective cross-cultural work. Through case studies and participatory methods, participants will develop a deeper understanding and practical skills to engage with the core elements of cross-cultural conflict resolution.
