Rethinking Mediation: Resolving Religious Conflicts

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted Feb 06, 2018 | Center for Security Studies, Jonas Baumann et al

Non-religious conflicts declined in the 1990s and have levelled since then. Jonas Baumann et al suggest in this report for the Center for Security Studies that classical conflict resolution approaches are working except when it comes to religious issues. Given the deeply emotional nature of religiously-based worldviews, people and societies tend to react strongly to pressure to forgo their beliefs. Joint practical solutions to such conflicts are required to allow parties to manage their differences in a nonconflictual way, increases the trust between them and allows each group to re-evaluate its positions, while remaining true to its beliefs.
