Did you know that approximately 5% of conflicts in the world become intractable?
This series explores how and why certain conflicts elevate to an intractable level in order to better understand this type of conflict. Peter Coleman with Columbia University has studied the root cause of intractable conflicts and identified more than fifty reasons ranging from politics to personal revenge to trauma. It is important to understand intractable conflict so that we can more effectively work towards resolving these complex conflicts.
This four part video series provide an introduction to the “Five Percent Problem.” This video introduces emerging research on intractable conflicts. Each video is meant to help a diverse audience understand the fundamental concepts behind this area of emerging research and education. Video content from Columbia University and Peter T. Coleman who is author of the book, “The Five Percent: Finding Solutions to Seemingly Impossible Conflicts.”
