In Conflict? How to transform conflict using futures methods, with Professor Ivana Milojević

Blurry night sky

This resource is an opportunity for yourself and/or your personnel to participate in a professional development session with an international thinker in the field of conflict transformation, Professor Ivana Milojević.

Key benefits
  • Understand how conflicts arise, escalate and what can we do to transform conflicts
  • Further develop capabilities in identifying and responding skilfully and mindfully to conflicts
  • Learn guidelines into conflict prevention as well as post-conflict repair and recovery

Further Information

There has never been a more important time than now to cultivate greater capabilities in identifying and responding skilfully and mindfully to conflicts, as individual leaders, as organisations and as a sector. The COVID-19 health pandemic is creating more potential sources of conflict and intrapersonal (inner) and interpersonal conflicts are increasing. How well we manage these tensions will significantly shape the futures that others and we experience.

In this resource, Professor Ivana Milojević presents on conflict transformation and covers:

  • The why and how of conflict, including how conflicts arise, escalate and what can we do to transform conflict;
  • How we can constructively use the past and the future to resolve conflicts, rather than framing them;
  • Leading participants through a process to transform their own unique conflict (or conflicts participants have observed);
  • Using futures methods to understand, frame and re-frame the existing conflict, deescalate, minimise or transform it; and
  • Guidelines into conflict prevention as well as post-conflict repair and recovery.
