Recognizing that everyone possesses unique cultural attributes and learning how an individuals' values and cross-cultural thinking impacts conflict
Better understanding of impartiality from a Mediator's perspective and examining the role that conflict resolvers can play in achieving cross-cultural empathy and resolution
Understanding the ethical issues inherent in individual interactions and decision-making
