Culture is always a factor in conflict, whether is plays a central role or influences it subtly and gently (LeBaron, 2003), and culture definitely shapes how we understand that incompatibility, what actions and reactions are seen as appropriate, and what possible solutions would look like. An understanding of culture is needed in order to understand why parties value their goals, and how they understand and weigh the costs of conflict.
IfGIC-Team based in Potsdam received a grant form the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees (BAMF) for conducting the series of workshops on the subject of dealing with conflict and mobbing in the intercultural context.
The target group for those workshops are volounteers, social workers and people working in the field of education, training, integration etc. The language of the workshops is German.
Here you can find more informations in German and you can register for the workshop. The participation is free of charge.
