Assignment 10.1 – Conflict Intervention Case Study
Choose a public dispute from the news. Create a chart which lists the parties (aka stakeholders), their interests and their BATNAs (list these in a chart) Where does the dispute fall on the spiral of unmanaged conflict? Suggest one type of intervention found in your reading or in additional research you have done. Your recommended interventions must be supported by reference to course material and/or outside research. Remember, mediation is not always the best, or the only, process. Defend your process choice by explaining why other possibilities would be less useful in this situation. Tell the reader:
- Your diagnosis of the underlying causes of the dispute
- Why the selected intervention(s) is likely to resolve this dispute and possibly prevent similar future disputes
- Why this intervention(s) was chosen above other possible interventions
