Rebecca Fagan's insight:

To resolve this conflict, acheive mutual satisfaction and to come to the best possible outcome, sometimes a comrpomise is necessary. In this image we see two donkeys who both wanted the same food except from different sources which caused conflict as they were tethered together. They must work together and be patientto so that each can eat from their specified stack. This is true in life as, to resolve conflict, we must talk to each other to avoid this strain and work together to both get what we want.

Rebecca Fagan's insight:

Here, pictured is Martin Luther King a famous activist against racism and the segregation and inequality that formed such conflict within America due to race. He claims here that although consequences may form from following ethics and morality, that if we stop to do this we might as well be dead. There is a conflict within us to follow the crowd or to follow what we know is right. Despite the social consequences, here imprisonment, the consequences of not speakingup to defend people and their rights is far greater.

Rebecca Fagan's insight:

This text shows the compression that conflict brings. When amongst conflict, it is overwhleming and our response may be to give up as we feel that we are unable to overcome it but, as we see exhibited here, whatever conflict we encounter makes us stronger eventually. There is a profound balance between what we can take and what we can't but when we survive, we live to see the rewards of our perseverance.

Rebecca Fagan's insight:

Here, we can see that there are many steps which are required to resolve conflict. It is a balance between making sure your voice is heard and listening to others; suppressing emotions but not letting them be ignored; clarifying the situation and creating a safer environment in which the problem is resolved and a safe environment is restored. The ultimate aim is to resolve the conflict and ensure that all buckets are employed.

Rebecca Fagan's insight:

Often, conflict continues because people refuse to take the blame and be accountable for their actions and 'point the finger'. When everyone involved does this, the conflict continues as to who is the most to blame and the conflict is not resolvded. This response to conflict is not at all constructive as one will not become accountable for their actions, will shift the blame, live in ignorance and not forgive others. This can be at all levels, international all the way to within a family.

Rebecca Fagan's insight:

Conflict not only occurs in war between countries but it prevails in everyday life such as in the workplace. Here, they have a process in which to follow so as to avoid conflict and to produce a more productive workplace. Conflict stops a company or business from being able to work productively and is counter-productive. Sometimes third parties are needed to bring a resolution and to 'referee'. In this case, the conflict must be resolved in order to attain a safe and productive workplace.

Rebecca Fagan's insight:

This picture comprises of both text and images. Each of the placards held each signify a particular stereotype that drives social segregation and, utlimately, conflict, in society. As each of these cards are hand written, the viewer associates a sense of realism towards these stereotypes and empathy to those who are subjected to these prejudices. The pictures of some people who suffer from them makes it more real to the audience, completing the artist's intentions to cause the audience to sympathise and reform their views of others. The sad faces of these individuals shows the negativeness of these stereotypes and their conflict against society's view of them.
