Conflict Competence: An Exploration of its importance and skills

Vedabhyas Kundu


In a world where individuals have to negotiate a variety of conflicts in their daily lives- right from the individual level to societal level, it is critical that we strive to develop our conflict competencies. Enhancing our conflict competencies will help us negotiate the complexities in different conflict situations that we may encounter. Nurturing appropriate skills and abilities to analyze the root causes of conflicts and developing capabilities to address these will help us to ensure lasting resolution of these conflicts. Developing conflict competencies is not a one-time training process; instead it is an ongoing process requiring constant additions to skills and experiences. This chapter will explore the different dimensions of conflict competencies, its role and importance in contemporary society.
