Cultivating conflict and pluralism through dialogical deconstruction

F. Heymann, A. Wals

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


    The dialectic between divergence of interests, values and worldviews and the need for shared resolutions of natural resource management issues is explored. The conflicts that emerge when trying to resolve natural resource management issues, are prerequisites, rather than barriers, to reaching solutions that can be sustained for longer periods of time. Central to this position is the facilitated cultivation of pluralism and conflict as expressed in the method of dialogical deconstruction in order to create more space for social learning
