ACR-GNY & CUNY Dispute Resolution Center at John Jay College present
Icebergs, Disputants, and the Limitations of Mediators
Many negotiation and mediation trainers have used the image of the iceberg to help trainees better understand the complexity of conflict situations. The iceberg has opened many opportunities for conversations about what is visible and what isn't in a conflict and to a mediator. A New York-based mediator will report on his trip to Antarctica, where he observed mediation processes among the floating icebergs.
