"Direct experience is not enough. Virtually any method of resolution may prove effective in addressing one or two situations of conflict. But we often do not know why. It might be because they are sound methods, because the particular method happened to work well with a particular type of conflict, because the intervener was particularly skillful or artful, or because of random luck. This gap between the science and practice of conflict resolution presents a dangerous challenge to the field of peacemaking today, particularly when it involves the high-stakes world of our most deadly, enduring conflicts."

That's exciting - I'm sure it will be great!

 

A quick question about the webinars: is it possible to "sign-on" after 5:00 pm (maybe around 5:30 or so) and just listen to the remaining part? I was just thinking that many people probably work until 5:00 but might be able to catch the 5:30-6:00 portion. I guess they can always check out the archive but it adds a little something to watch in "live."
