Mosten Lecture, Spring 2013
Date: May 14th
We have all watched political conversations degenerate into angry quarrels between deeply wounded, frightened, adversarial people; then deteriorate into brutal personal attacks and antagonistic power contests; ultimately sinking into screaming matches, shaming and blaming, and personal viciousness, sometimes resulting in senseless violence, and appalling acts of brutality.
What is our responsibility as dispute resolvers for the environmental, social, economic and political conflicts that are occurring around us? Can we apply conflict resolution principles to the inequalities, inequities, and dysfunctions that fuel chronic environmental, political, economic and social conflicts? Are we not implicitly responsible for learning to address and resolve global conflicts beyond our borders, helping to eliminate their chronic sources, and contributing to the redesign of conflict generating structures, processes, institutions and practices, so as to prevent their recurrence? And how can we bring these changes about without recreating the very problems we seek to solve?
Successful political decision-making and conflict resolution require not silence or rage, but dialogue; not aggression, but collaboration; not accommodation, but courageous, constructive, creative contention. Silence in the face of critical issues signifies not merely the absence of speech, but of integrity, and therefore of self, values, citizenship, and community.
This talk will examine the role mediators can play in helping to resolve chronic, complex global conflicts, and identify ways of acting locally and internationally to build conflict resolution capacity around the world, thereby helping to create a "conflict revolution."
