Dimensiunea interculturala în rezolvarea conflictelor

Romanian Economic Journal, 2008, vol. 11, issue 30, 89-102

Abstract: This paper aims to examine the ambiguous and complicated concept of culture; explore how culture affects our own conceptions of conflict; consider some of the influences culture has on conflict resolution. Conflict is experienced at all levels of human activity from the intra-personal to the international. Although many people and cultures regard conflict as a negative experience, it need not be. Conflicts are complex processes. However, there are certain basic elements of structure and process which conflict situations have in common. One way of conceptualising the relationship between these elements is a triangle with Attitudes, Behaviours and Structure at the points. While conflict is universal, the ways in which it is expressed and handled are not. Each specific cultural framework has its own conception of conflict and techniques and processes for managing and resolving it.
