This guide on the basic tools of conflict analysis was developed by PartnersGlobal for a virtual course as part of the Communities Building Peace Together in Guatemala project, an initiative financed by USAID and implemented by Creative Associates International, Fundación ProPaz and PartnersGlobal. There are many ways to categorize conflict analysis tools. In this guide we divide them according to the element of the conflict they address – the people, the process or problem. This guide is currently available in Spanish only.Guia_Herramientas-para-la-resolucion-de-conflictos

The PartnersGlobal Resiliency+ Framework requires a shift in mindset for leaders and teams within organizations to think differently and partner in new ways to continue to survive and thrive when facing shocks. At times of great stress, upheaval, and change, we are called upon to build up our conflict resolution skills. Therefore, communication skills, including asking the right questions, are integral to applying the Resiliency+ Framework in practice, putting empathy and restorative practice at the center of our resiliency journeys as civil society.
As conflict resolution expert Ken Cloke explains in this slideshow presentation, chronic conflict reduces resiliency within organizations and societies. Mediation and conflict resolution, he says, are therefore resiliency processes. By applying mediation or conflict resolution-based communications to reach out to those who think differently and address challenges, we are in fact working to bolster our resiliency.
Staff Readiness and Well-Being are essential to an organization’s sustainability and resiliency. Yet too often, organizational culture, leadership, and resources don’t provide frameworks and policies to ensure these key elements can be meaningfully supported. In conjunction with the webinar series for PartnersGlobal’s Resiliency+ Framework, this resource guide form The Contact Project aims to provide basic insights for developing a culture and policies for well-being and staff readiness.
