In recognition of Conflict Resolution Day, Jeffrey Callison from the radio program Insight on KXJZ Capital Public Radio interviewed the Center for Collaborative Policy and two stakeholders from the Sacramento Area Water Forum on October 18, 2006.

  • Why use conflict resolution and collaborative processes?
  • Conditions needed for a collaborative process
  • Roles of stakeholder representatives and mediators

  • Tips for parties stuck in conflict
