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?
