By utuilizing this method of conflict resolution it makes my job easier in some instances. Given that I work in a quasi military environment and hold a position of command, this tends to be quick solution to problems in some instances. However, at times, compromising and collaboration work as an alternative method of conflict resolution. This is especially true when it involves working with other police departments on county wide projects and iniatives. These styles often times produce the best results because it allows for the best of all agencies to be incorporated into the
The Sudan Peoples ' Liberation Movement (SPLM) grew to enjoy the support of a large section of the rural poor and dispossessed in the North, since it addressed the fears of marginalized peoples. This marked a fundamental transformation of the original north-south division of the country, with ethnicity superseded by economic exigency. The ethnically mixed urban poor of Khartoum were able to say, "Inshallah, John Garang will liberate us". (The recent split in the SPLA- patched up again at the Abjure conference in June 1992 with the move by Garang towards the advocates of separation of the South - suggests that tribal and racial loyalties are still active factors, however, and that rhetoric may not always be matched by reality). The war in the South is best understood as resulting from opposing political approaches to the reality of diminishing resources. In the search for a lasting peace it is necessary to understand this new dimension to the old conflict.

Conflict theory has three assumptions: 1. conflict arises from having conflicting interests or competing for the same resources; 2. conflict usually leads to one or more individuals controlling others; 3. making changes in society is good and necessary. In each society, there are sub-groups and within the groups, each member has their own values, norms, and beliefs. Groups are defined as having at least two individuals sharing the feeling of one of the same and are
Whilst conflict is inevitable Harding provides insight in describing conflict “as the beginning of consciousness”.
There are numerous people that view or assume that conflict is destructive. But some other individuals perceive conflict in a different insight because there can be made changes to address the problems regarding the conflict. There are positives perspectives on conflict like it provides opportunities for individuals to present contradictory yet fairly valid views that allow the understanding of their contributions to their jobs. Many Health care workers face recurrent conflicts because of the lack of communication and making assumptions. Many staff members may claim that they are no conflicts in there workfield others may argue that this is the outcome of not acknowledging conflict.The majority of conflicts uprise from
Confrontation occurs when ill intent is present between two or more parties. This is followed by Truce, this is when each party is forced to interject a third-party to help resolve the confrontation. Collaboration is inclusive of the previous ill intent from the confrontation, however, but specific activities are accepted by both parties. Cooperation, the intent is neutral while activities are being planned and carried out. The process of interdependence involves both parties working actively towards the common goal of the conflict. Finally, integration both parties reach a common goal and work together to carry out the planned
Schattschneider describes the concept of the “Scope of conflict” where the losing party is the one who calls for outside help. Where we look
The notion and the meaning of conflict have evolved with time. Before Coser, conflict was seen more as a source of social change and disintegration. However, the conflict theory we are referring to here is not necessarily an infliction of violence or atrocities, but a conflict that arises due to unequal distribution of power and resources. Theorists consider power to be an important element of conflict theory. For instance, who uses power or where is power located are two of the main concerns of conflict theory. In fact, Coser, himself says power is not a bad thing but it is a factor that helps shape relations within a society. In his theory, Coser tries bringing out the meaning of conflict in a society; how a conflict starts in a society; how unequal distribution of power within a society leads to conflict and the consequences that it brings along.
There are two questions to be asked about nonbelievers: first, which values affirm coexistence with those outside the world of the believer, and which do not? Second, can the values that affirm coexistence be strengthened by leaders and activists in such a way as dramatically to remove animosity toward nonbelievers?
Ramsbotham states that beginning of the conflict resolution has aspired to multilevel, multidisciplinary, multicultural, both analytic and normative, and both theoretical and practical. Which are important principles of the conflict resolution. Multilevel: conflict resolution technique involves with diverse levels of conflict. Multilevel helps to resolve the conflict such as interpersonal, intra-personal, inter group, and international, as well as global level. Multidisciplinary: Ramsbotham argues that multidisciplinary characteristic entails to understanding and addressing the complex conflict systems. This system had to draw on many disciplines, such as politics, global relations, development, individual and social studies and so on. It
Conflict is unpleasant, but inevitable throughout life. In any situation involving two or people, conflict may arise. Conflict can be defined as, “any situation in which incompatible goals, cognitions, or emotions within or between individuals or groups lead to opposition or antagonistic interaction” (Learning Team Toolkit, 2004, pp 242-243). People come from different backgrounds and live through different life experiences therefore, even when working towards a common goal, they will not always agree. Major conflict that is not dealt with can devastate a team or organization (Make Conflict Work, 2008). In some situations, conflict can be more constructive than destructive. In this paper we take a look at two technology giants,
John Galtung recommended that conflict could be observed as a triangle, with contradiction (C), attitude (A) and behaviour. He explained that all three aspects must be there in a full conflict condition. Contradiction is an important factor of a conflict which mentioned through the parties, their intentions and the clash of interests between them. Attitude comprises the parties’ views and misunderstandings of each other and of themselves. Behaviour is the third factor which can involve coercion or cooperation, gestures defining conciliation or hostility. The violent conflict approach is defined through coercion, threats, and destructive assaults. Galtung’s, model suggests that each of these components influence one another, and while each
The purpose of this section of the essay is to present the theoretical framework that will be employed and unpacked in completing my field of study, which seeks to investigate bias in media representations of conflict. The ways in which the media construct the news regarding conflict and peace are important. This is the case because society often depends on the media as a major source of information about conflicts. The main focus of this section seeks to unpack the journalistic techniques used by the media when representing conflict. By referring to key concepts of conflict representation theory I will further outline the dangers associated with this style of representation. Given the technical aspects of this study, I aim
