Re-entry: Feeding back into conflict settlement and conflict transformation
Pages 18

When the management of radical disagreement via a strategic engagement of discourses is successful, conflict parties otherwise not amenable to transformative dialogic approaches are brought to a point where they may have an incentive to participate. Dialogue for mutual understanding again becomes possible, space for conflict settlement is opened up, and continuous monitoring and exploration of radical disagreement can play a key role in early warning for prevention and postwar reconstruction. In these circumstances, the strategic engagement of discourses is a pump-primer for conflict resolution.
