New Developments in Conflict Framing
Keywords: conflict framing, identity frames, whole story frames, conflict role, rhetorical practices, intractability
Abstract: This symposium focuses on new developments in conflict framing research. In particular, it centers on quantitative assessment of framing in workplace conflicts, sensemaking that highlights different perspectives in the restorative justice movement, and multi-level analyses of framing in environmental disputes. Each of the presentations also introduces new constructs for understanding conflict framing, including new types of framing, the language used by practitioners, the role of fault-lines in framing public disputes, and links between local and national levels of conflict framing.
