Constructive Confrontation Initiative
This Spring, MBI is offering an extensive series of activities designed to help us ALL work more effectively to limit the destructiveness associated with today's bitter political confrontations. Please join us.
Please Support Our Winter Fundraising Drive
Please help us raise the remaining $5,500 of the $18,000 we need to operate and continue to develop BI through the first half of 2018.
|Benefits of Conflict|
|Louis Kriesberg talks about the development of the field and his work in it, focusing for one, on the understanding that conflicts can have benefits as well as costs.|
|Paul Wehr suggests that a central goal of the conflict resolution movement is to make conflict harmless.|
|Peter Coleman describes how an abortion dialogue in Boston had its genesis in a shooting.|
|The third side can help prevent violence, but it does not resolve the conflict, cautions William Ury. Rather it provides a "container" in which the "lead of destructive conflict" is turned into the "gold of constructive confrontation."|
