The “Salaam Fellowship for Conflict Resolution” is intense, week-long training and cultural exchange program that aims to provide fellows with a deeper understanding of conflict in its many forms. Fellowship participants will be equipped with critical competencies in conflict management and negotiation at both the interpersonal and intergroup level, taking care to examine the cultural implications involved.
