Conflict in the News Graphic

Beyond Intractability In Context

Beyond Intractability's efforts to promote more constructive approaches to conflict occur within the larger context of efforts to promote wise and equitable solutions to a broad range of social problems. This blog highlights readable news and opinion articles, "infographics" and reports that help us understand the costs--and hence, urgency -- of the conflict problem, the dynamics that make it so difficult,  alternative responses, and innovative success stories about people who have successfully confronted various aspects of the problem in different settings.
