‘Stories That Work: Cross-Cultural Mediation’ | Ilyll Sne-Or | Aug 12 2020, 05:00pm
“Every conflict consists of a narrative and each person involved in conflict owns a narrative. Conflict is not only a clash of cultures but also a discordance of narratives. Professionals aiming to lead mediation processes ought to have the skills to work with narratives. When managing narratives, you primarily focus on how to listen and recognize the dominant cultural attitudes to basic human values such as trust, time, power, gender and more. Then, you touch upon the meaning it gives the narrative holder. Finally, you will encounter manners of reconstructing a shared narrative for both parties involved in the conflict. Mediating Cross-Culturally requires acknowledging the power of stories, the ability to recreate a new shared story as a tool to sustainable cultural mediation.
