about this item

Diasporas in Dialogue integrates Western and traditional community modes of peacebuilding to provide a unique blueprint for working with diaspora populations all over the world. Communities in conflict import the conflict relationship with them when they migrate to a resettlement context, and it is therefore crucial to understand and address these issues. Documenting the landmark Diaspora Dialogue Project (DDP) from first vision to final evaluation, the text reflects the culmination of five years of work conducting needs assessment, dialogue processes, facilitator training, and capacity building in refugee communities rooted in historical conflict. It presents both a theoretical and practical framework for dialogue, offering insight into the many challenges of working in this capacity, along with Dialogue Session templates, worksheets, evaluation tools, and recommendations for addressing issues of recruitment and cultural congruence.

Barbara Tint is Professor of Conflict Resolution at Portland State University and an international trainer, consultant, and facilitator. She travels globally, training groups in issues of dialogue, status and power, intercultural relations, leadership, gender dynamics, and resilience. She has facilitated dialogue processes with Jewish Israelis and Palestinians, mixed race groups in the United States, Tamil and Sinhalese community members in Sri Lanka, white and Aboriginal Australians, mixed gender groups, and refugee communities from Africa.
