QUOTE OF THE DAY!

“The most beautiful discovery

   they can grow separately
     without growing apart”
      By Elisabeth Foley, writer

be contradictory, at variance, or in opposition”
                                                   31
   WHAT IS CONFLICT
    RESOLUTION?
    “Uses a range of methods to address issues
      whether at the inter-personal level or state”

“Resolving a given conflict in the least destructive way”

     “Processes of conflict resolution generally
      include negotiation, mediation, diplomacy
             and creative peacebuilding”
                                                       32
