BIASES

Bias is an inclination to present or hold a partial perspective at the expense of alternatives that may also be valid.


Stereotypes

STEREOTYPES

  • A stereotype is an exaggerated belief, image or distorted truth about a person or a group. This generalization does not allow for individual differences or social variation. These stereotypes may come from the mass media, family discussions, close friends, personal experience, etc. Stereotypes can be both negative and positive.

  • Our identities and how we identify others often determines

  • some of our stereotypes.


Prejudice

Prejudice

Prejudice is an opinion, prejudgment or attitude about a group or its individual members.

Prejudices are usually aimed at the “other” and are often accompanied by ignorance, fear or hatred.

Identities also shapes our prejudices.

Prejudice can not be eliminated by law and policy


Discrimination

Discrimination is behavior that treats people unequally because of their group memberships (i.e. race, ethnicity, faith, nationality etc.) Discriminatory behavior, ranging from slights to hate crimes, often begins with negative stereotypes and prejudices.

Assumption

ASSUMPTION

  • An assumption is an idea we have about something that we think to be true even though we may not have sufficient evidence to prove that it is true. This assumption often determines how we act to situations or respond to people.


Moving from tolerance to acceptance to engagement

MOVING FROM

TOLERANCE

TO

ACCEPTANCE

TO

ENGAGEMENT

DISCUSSION

OR

DIALOGUE


Rear view what s he mean rear view

Tolerance –

  • To bear something which is difficult or uncomfortable. (like a toothache or a very noise person)

  • To put up with someone who is disliked for their differences.

  • While people deemed undesirable may be disapproved of, "tolerance" would require that the party or group in question be left undisturbed, physically or otherwise, and that criticism directed toward them be free of inflammatory or harmful efforts.


Tolerance good bad

TOLERANCE – GOOD? BAD?

  • Religious tolerance

  • Ethnic tolerance

  • Political tolerance


Rear view what s he mean rear view

Tolerance doesn’t always last!

  • When the toothache seems unbearable, it will no longer be tolerated!

  • When we believe that we can no longer tolerate the “undesirable” person, we try to avoid them or fight them.


Rear view what s he mean rear view

Acceptance -

  • To receive something even if one doesn’t like it.

  • Usually refers to the experience of a situation without an intention to change that situation.

  • Acceptance is often contrasted with resistance.


Rear view what s he mean rear view

Engagement –

  • To meet together for the purpose of mutual benefit

  • It suggests a commitment to learning and living together, to listen deeply to each other.


Rear view what s he mean rear view

TO LEARN WE MUST FIRST UNLEARN SO THAT WE CAN RELEARN

  • The person of knowledge tries to learn many things. The person of wisdom tries to unlearn many things.


Dialogue versus discussion

DIALOGUE VERSUS DISCUSSION

  • “Through meaning” (slow)

  • To inquire and to learn

  • To seek shared meaning

  • To integrate multiple perspectives – not to win

  • To uncover and examine assumptions

  • Open-ended

  • Creates a community-based culture of cooperation and shared leadership (power with)

  • Leads to transformation of self

  • “Discus” – to throw, fragment, shatter (same roots as percussion and concussion)

  • To tell, sell, persuade

  • To gain agreement on one meaning

  • To evaluate and select the best – to win

  • To justify/defend assumptions

  • Seeks a solution

  • Tends to create division and centralized leadership (power over)

  • Little opportunity for transformation

CONFLICT

When human beings have contact with each other, conflicts will occur. Conflict is normal.

  • Conflict can result in positive changes in personal relationships or community relationships.

  • When conflict is not dealt with in a positive way, it can become violence.

  • Opp0rtunity or conjuncture for positive change.


Rear view what s he mean rear view

  • 1. Conflict management

    • Relies on laws and rules

    • Conflict is controlled but may still remain

    • Might involve punishment

    • One party is right and one party is wrong

    • Requires continuous management

  • 2. Conflict resolution

    • Win-win solutions sought but someone still loses

    • Dignity may be lost because of compromise

    • Requires a mediator/expert

    • Conflict may emerge in the future and will again require mediation by an expert

    • Does not necessarily address the issue of injustice


  • Rear view what s he mean rear view

    • 3. Conflict transformation

      • Conflict is an opportunity for personal/social transformation

      • Seeking a true justice is central to this approach

      • Requires engagement and dialogue rather than tolerance and discussion

      • Moves toward creative use of conflict for personal/group transformation

      • Transformation means a long-term end to the conflict

      • No winner/loser situation

      • Requires deep listening

      • Transformation spreads to other areas of relationship

    LAKOTA CONCEPT OF CONFLICT TRANSFORMATION

    RESTORING HARMONY IS CENTRAL TO THE LAKOTA CONCEPT OF CONFLICT TRANFORMATION


    Important

    IMPORTANT

    • Every tool you need to do effective conflict transformation in your communities can be found in your own history, culture, traditions, experience and religious faith.

    • Outside models take power away from the oppressed.

    Violence

    Violence

    • IMPORTANT

      • There are many different possible responses to violence.

      • “I have no choice” means I do not want to take responsibility for what I do and so I stop thinking.

      • The result of our response will either confront and transform the violence or it will directly/indirectly support the violence.

    GET RID OF THE OBSTACLES TO PEACE (INJUSTICE)
