This book is written for those who wish to enhance their understanding of and
competencies with constructively managing conflict. Our interest in developing
this resource came at the request of government and community practitioners with
whom we worked on various projects, ranging from pedagogy in the classroom to
strategic planning and consensus-building in the community. This wide range of
demand underscores the limited scope of research on effective dispute resolution
and the infancy of conflict management as an area of practice.
Planning involves selecting a course of action and specifying how the action will be implemented. The first step in planning is to identify the various alternatives. Next, the alternative that does the best job of furthering the organization’s objectives is selected. Management’s plans are usually expressed in budgets. Typically, budgets are prepared annually under the direction of the controller, who is the manager of the accounting department.
INCE 1945, FEW developments have had such a profound impact
on international relations, and few issues have drawn as much atten-
tion in public international law as nuclear weapons. Innumerable
books, articles, resolutions, ofﬁcial statements, and memoranda have dealt
with the status, function, and the (il)legality of the use and possession of
this category of ‘weapons of mass destruction’,
and almost all of them
agree that nuclear weapons are potentially the most destructive weapons
These Emerging Conclusions offer a preliminary analysis of the findings of four reports
from the Economies of Conflict policy research series, a project of Fafo’s Programme
for International Co-operation and Conflict Resolution (PICCR). These
reports are the first to emerge from the series, which examines the links between
certain private sector activity and armed conflict.

It has been suggested that in a number of professions soft skills may be more important over the long term than occupational skills. The legal profession is one example where the ability to deal with people effectively and politely, more than their mere occupational skills, can determine the professional success of a lawyer.
Soft Skills are behavioral competencies.
Drawing on one of the most comprehensive surveys of post-apartheid attitudes to date, and employing innovative conceptual and methodological tools, Gibson’s analysis offers both encouraging and disheartening insights into the success of the truth and reconciliation process. This is a major contribution to the literature on transitional justice and conflict resolution.
In collaborative planning activities, since the agents are autonomous and heterogeneous, it is inevitable that conflicts arise in their beliefs during the planning process. In cases where such conflicts are relevant to the t~t~k at hand, the agents should engage in collaborative negotiation as an attempt to square away the discrepancies in their beliefs. This paper presents a computational strategy for detecting conflicts regarding proposed beliefs and for engaging in collaborative negotiation to resolve the conflicts that warrant resolution.

This book is concerned with Personal, Social and Health Education
practice in primary and secondary schools. Developing effective practice
in current contexts is challenging for practitioners. Although the
revised English National Curriculum (Curriculum 2000) gives a greater
and more explicit place to PSHE and Citizenship, for school leaders and
classroom teachers this can seem like yet another thing to add to their
long list of jobs to be done and expectations to be met.
This report examines social and economic development policies enacted by three countries—Israel, the Philippines, and the United Kingdom—to inhibit a resurgence of terrorist violence within their territorial jurisdictions. The analysis focuses on development initiatives that have been incorporated in wider peace and conflict resolution efforts in an attempt to mitigate local perceptions of past wrongdoings in communities that support terrorist groups.
Semantic feedback is an important source of information that a parser could use to deal with local ambiguities in syntax. However, it is difficult to devise a systematic communication mechanism for interactive syntax and semantics. In this article, I propose a variant of left-corner parsing to define the points at which syntax and semantics should interact, an account of grammatical relations and thematic roles to define the content of the communication, and a conflict resolution strategy based on independent preferences from syntax and semantics.
The occupation by France of the lower Mississippi gave a strong impulse to the exploration of the West, by
supplying a base for discovery, stimulating enterprise by the longing to find gold mines, open trade with New
Mexico, and get a fast hold on the countries beyond the Mississippi in anticipation of Spain; and to these
motives was soon added the hope of finding an overland way to the Pacific. It was the Canadians, with their
indomitable spirit of adventure, who led the way in the path of discovery.
