Why are cultural conflicts difficult to resolve

Conflicts constructively

A book for secondary school

"Fuck German!" "Kanake!" - such sounds in the course of the ever advancing globalization? But a multicultural society is not just about adapting and leveling to a norm. And the political refugee can also be a wicked macho. The complaints of girls and women about being hit by cliques of young foreigners are not racist, but real. Just as xenophobia happens more often than we read in the newspaper.

Is there a method with which one can resolve conflicts and at the same time accept the cultural differences? But does mediation also work with people who have different cultural backgrounds? Are there ways out of ghettoization and isolated cultural in-groups that are mutually hostile? Everything that is presented here has also been tried out with people from different cultures. Role plays represent conflict situations and reveal the core of the communication difficulties.

Discover structures, break them open and find a way to better coexistence. Different examples and methods give you suggestions not to despair even in the case of seemingly hopeless "conflicts". Dare - it works! This book is suitable for school as well as for work in youth groups and with adults.

The "Blickpunkt Schule" means:

"'Fuck German!', 'Polacke!', 'Arab!', 'Gypsy pack!' - How do such tones fit in with ever increasing globalization? But the coexistence of different cultures is not a cuddle story - conflicts are part of everyday life. As long as you can still work on it together, everything is fine.

A successful method of dispute settlement is mediation, which has been used successfully in practice for several years. A tried and tested means in schools, in legal disputes or divorces. In the case of intercultural conflicts, the supposed "pick-up" is often based on a different cultural socialization. To learn to accept these cultural differences but also to solve the resulting conflicts at the same time is the seemingly impossible achievement that the mediation method promises.

The conflict scenarios presented in this book were tried out with people from different cultures. There it goes z. For example, about a German and Turkish soccer team in Berlin who want to fight against each other not only on the pitch in their next championship game; to X, who absolutely does not want to spend Christmas in the country of his spouse Y; about the fictional island of Klopstokia, on which two different ethnic groups live, who make life difficult for one another with their prejudices and mistrust. The conflict situations are presented in role-playing games and the core of the communication difficulties uncovered so that both parties can feel that they are winners. Anyone can be nice - real arguing has to be learned. "
