Culture plays a crucial part in every conflict. While only a small segment is visible on the surface, the powerful core of meaning lies in the depths of the collective psyche. From these depths comes our perception of ourselves and of the other, our moral and world views, beliefs, judgements and relationships.

But are cultural differences at the root of conflict? How to move from the concept that culture is a barrier in conflict resolution to the concept of harnessing the power of culture to resolve them? Could culture provide the means and tools for finding common ground, help us to overcome hurdles, improve communication?

Join Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, former chief negotiator in the Philippine peace process and former member of the UN Standby Team of Senior Mediation Advisers; Alastair Crooke, former advisor on Middle East issues to the EU Foreign Policy Chief, and a member of the UN’s Alliance of Civilizations Global Experts; Emmanuel Habuka Bombande, UN Senior Mediation Adviser and Former Deputy Foreign Minister of Ghana; for a panel that brings insights into the role of culture in conflict, looks into different ways of approaching intractable cross-cultural conflict, and offers perspectives on how to understand, absorb and transcend otherness and polarity. Miloš Strugar, Director of Conflux Center and UN Senior Mediation Adviser, will moderate.

The discussion will take place on Tuesday, 16 November 2021, from 13:00 to 14:00 CET via Zoom.
