During the workshops we explored and tested a number of methods to analyze and intervene into prolonged conflicts.
Conflict clinic is a method that can be used to explore conflict situations. Creating a conflict timeline can help to reflect on it and to identify new ideas.
Dialogue without a topic
Dialogue without a topic is an open dialogue method.
Joint Fact Finding
Environmental conflicts are often knowledge-related. There is lack of knowledge or disagreement about the facts. Joint fact finding can help to extend the factual base but more importantly it can be used as a tool to build dialogue or initiate collaboration. It can be used to embrace uncertainty, to find new questions and build ownership of the process.
