The Conflict Information Consortium has a primary focus on complex, society-wide intractable conflict. It has pioneered efforts to use information technologies to provide people from all walks of life with the information that they need in order to deal with these incredibly difficult conflicts more constructively. The Consortium sees such efforts to enhance and mobilize the skills of the general population as critical to efforts to deal with these complex, society-wide conflicts.
Guy and Heidi Burgess both earned their Ph.D.s in sociology from the University of Colorado in 1979. They then did postdoctoral work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and worked for several years as public policy conflict consultants. In 1988, with support from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, they established (along with others) the University of Colorado Conflict Research Consortium (now called the Conflict Information Consortium), which they have co-directed ever since.

Narrative mediation is a culturally focused practice that is based upon the notion that our lives are shaped by the stories that people tell about us and by the stories that we tell ourselves. The goal of the narrative mediator is to co-author stories that highlight strengths and competencies, rather than conflict. It helps people separate themselves from conflict-saturated stories and gives them the opportunity to re-author relationships in more peaceful, cooperative, and respectful ways. From this alternative position, the resolution of conflict can often happen much more smoothly and effectively than in traditional problem-solving approaches.

The current ongoing flare-up in violence between Israel and Gaza reminds us of how dangerous and fragile our world is. Our hearts go out for the innocent men, women, and children who are caught in the crossfire on both the Israeli and Palestinian sides, and we hope and pray that the fighting will end swiftly so that peace and normalcy will return.
One of the tactics that the Israeli military has used throughout the conflict in order to help save lives is by sending warnings to residents who live in areas close to targets the military is going to strike. These warnings to evacuate have been issued via automated phone calls, text messages, and leaflets dropped from planes. Those who take heed to the fair warnings stand a better chance of surviving the warfare. Those who don't put their own lives at risk.
In our society, we value the benefits of a fair warning. We have tornado warning systems that sound off telling people that they need to get to shelter as quickly as possible. The Pacific Tsunami Warning Center monitors the effects of earthquakes around the Ring of Fire and lets communities know when they need to warn people to move to higher ground. We rely on weather forecasts in order to determine how we need to prepare for the next day or the next week. If we take heed to the fair warnings that we receive, we can stay out of a lot of trouble and avoid many tragic situations.
Thankfully, we have also been given fair warning about the greatest tragedy that can befall any one of us. That tragedy is the eternal consequences of our sins and the rejection of a free gift that can deliver us from those consequences. When a group of religious people came to John the Baptist to be baptized, John asked them, "Who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?"

Nina has worked with many cultures in her decades of mediation work. She will share concepts such as the different ways of looking at fairness, how cultures respond to conflict and why they have dissimilar desires as to their goals and outcomes, how people express the same emotion in a variety of ways, and why it is a common mistake to "pretend to be in someone else's shoes". This very practical 30 minutes will help you understand some of the diversity across cultures that can create problems and explore positive steps in working through the conflict.
