Programs and Activities: Part 2. Dagestan

Getting Ready 2 (15 minutes)

Sources of Conflict

Site Leader: Before beginning this activity, help participants find a partner. Also help them keep to five minutes for the first part of this activity.

Take five minutes to make a list of possible reasons for conflict between or among cultures (or nations). Place a check next to any item(s) you have on your list with which you have personal experience.

Take ten minutes to compare and discuss your list with a partner. Address these questions:

  • How might having personal experience with such conflict influence someone's thinking about other cultures?
  • How can being geographically informed assist cultural insight?
