IJP2 Article Part 2: Consider how different framings affect different groups

Another clear theme in the Framing Challenge at the 2008 NCDD conference was the importance of understanding how different groups of people respond to the various ways public engagement is currently framed. In the online dialogue and at the conference itself, many pointed towards acquiring and cultivating greater sensitivity to the ways that distinct language ‘plays out’ for different groups. The concept of blind spots in our language – terms and phrases that dissuade or confuse without our realizing it – was discussed in the […] (see full post)

16-year-old Student Convenes Middle East Dialogue

Len and Libby Traubman sent us a great story recently about a student taking dialogue on the Middle East into her own hands.

"Potlucks for Peace" Promote Dialogue About Middle East

We just heard from Libby and Len Traubman about one person who is making a big difference to dialogue on the Middle East in Ottawa, Canada.

He was inspired to start “Potlucks for Peace” after attending a panel on the Middle East that quickly descended into a shouting match. Seeking to promote civil dialogue on the issues, he extended his hands (and his living room!) to both Arabs and Jews in […] (see full post)
