Conflict is part of the dynamics of any socio-economic and ecological system that involves multiple stakeholders with varying agendas, understanding, and perceptions, and is inevitable where a resource is managed in common. Despite the pressures on common pool natural resources, efficient and context-sensitive ways to manage conflict remain under-developed. Although participatory and deliberative processes help in building solutions, when stakeholders hold polarised positions and are less willing to enter into discussion, such approaches fall short. The aim of the dialogue is to build understanding through engagement with a heterogeneous group of stakeholders from different sectors of society: academia, government, resource users and managers, The knowledge exchange across different social actors will take the form of a workshop divided into three sessions: * Short presentations from a selected panel of academics and practitioners (pecha kucha style) focusing on issues identified from pre-Dialogue discussion between participating academics and practitioners who have experience of commons conflict. Wider audience discussion will then set the scene for structuring the dialogue around specific themes relevant to the conference and the Peruvian context. * Small-group themed discussions around a small set of defined issues that arise from the discussion in the first part of the Dialogue. This element will require input from a wider set of actors to enable exploration of how different stakeholders perceive, experience, and act, within particular conflict situations. * The final (plenary) session will involve feedback and discussion within the larger group and identification of actions going forward, and potentially, development of a practitioner/academic research group to seek funding to develop and test the conflict management methodology.
