CONFLICT DIRECTORY

A new facet of the Collaborative Web Project is the Conflict Directory.

The Directory is intended to help in the following ways:

  • identify conflict situations,
  • learn more about the people involved,
  • learn more about the issues involved, and
  • learn what is being done to help manage the conflict.
