The Importance of Inclusion: an Interview with Prof. Silvana Dalla Bontà

In sight of the second edition of Global Inclusion, an event supported by Università degli Studi di Trento, Prof. Silvana Dalla Bontà (founder and coordinator of the Conflict Managers of Tomorrow project) speaks about inclusion-related aspects of the Project.

Conflict Managers of Tomorrow promotes and educates on negotiation and mediation, two conflict resolution methods that by their own nature emphasize the importance of sharing. Negotiation and mediation theory envisions conflict as an opportunity for the parties to engage in joint problem solving rather than compete over limited resources.

The inclusion-oriented nature of the Project lies in the peculiar way trainers, coaches, and students interact. Students learn how to use soft and hard skills that will prove indispensable in their personal and professional life.

This learning process greatly fosters inclusion: it helps students master their life skills, which in turn contributes to the development of a respectful, constructive, and future-oriented world.

A Conversation on Mediation with Prof. Dalla Bontà

Founder and coordinator of the Conflict Managers of Tomorrow Project Prof. Silvana Dalla Bontà shares her perspective on mediation in an interview by Attorney Carlo Mosca (ADR Quadra).

The interview is part of Mosca’s research project on how practitioners and academics conceive mediation. The aim is to provide a comprehensive picture of the current status of mediation and future directions of the field.

Once again, Prof. Dalla Bontà highlights the importance of university education in raising awareness about conflict dynamics and effective resolution methods. Among all appropriate conflict resolution methods, mediation offers clear benefits – especially for some types of disputes.

The sooner one becomes acquainted with mediation, the better will they be able to exploit the potential of the process and pursue the most appropriate course of action to effectively resolve conflict. And this is exactly what the Conflict Managers of Tomorrow Project strives to accomplish.
