The current issue: Summer and Fall 2012
Helping groups that have deep disagreements -- about domestic politics, abortion, or any divisive topic -- can be a huge challenge.
The latest issue of NE-ACR News, prompted by the chapter's fall panel discussion titled "Conflict, Consensus, and Leadership in the Political Debate," offers insights into what mediator and author Susan L. Podziba calls "the binding force" that holds two groups together while the gap between them remains both intact and immense.
In the issue: An excerpt from Podziba's just-published book "Civic Fusion: Mediating Polarized Public Disputes"; thoughts on NE-ACR's October event featuring Podziba, Joni Doherty of the New England Center for Civic Life at Franklin Pierce University; Mari Fitzduff of Brandeis University; and moderator Loraine Della Porta of the Massachusetts Office of Public Collaboration; a column by chapter president Jane Beddall; an interview with US diplomat Frederick Barton; and remembrances of Don Dickey, the NE-ACR treasurer and board member who died in May.
We look forward to hearing what you think. Please email us at email@example.com.
