“Our challenge, therefore, is not to eliminate conflict but to transform it. It is to change the way we handle our most serious differences, replacing fighting, violence, and war with more constructive processes such as negotiation, democracy, and non-violent action. The task is to transform the culture of conflict from coercion to consent and from force to mutual interest. ”
– William L. Ury, from his book The Third Side: Why We Fight and How We Can Stop
