Methods

The methods of intervention we have developed should be regarded as only some of many ways in which youth can use online tools for transforming conflicts. We hope that conflict transformation practitioners will find them useful in their daily work.As the online conflict transformation practitioners, we should always keep in mind some specific competencies needed for this work and try to answer several questions before embarking fully into this work.

Do we understand our own online community?

Do we understand who/what is the source of conflict in the online community?

Can we be prompt in response as it is expected in the online community?

Are we able to see conflict reflections and consequences in “the real world” and to distinguish whether the topic is controversial or potentially violent?

Do we know how to re-frame problems and provide creative solutions through online tools?
