  Field Diplomacy - Reychler
More conflicts are expected, with old and new causes, such as the unequal or unfair trade balances between North and South, unemployment in the North, the environmental pollution, religious extremism, mass immigration and the growing number of failed states.
Such a peace is built on the concept of conflict transformation, underscoring the goal of moving a given population from the status of extreme vulnerability and dependency to that of self-sufficiency and well being.
A sixth element of the conflict paradigm of field diplomacy is attention to the deeper layers of the conflict.

 The Doctors' Medical Library - Nutritional Medicine
A paradigm is not examined or questioned and almost all of what we know to be "true" is paradigm derived.
This kind of doctor believes illness is almost always multifactorial in cause, and that an important factor in causation of overt illness is the condition of the patient when in the "healthy" state, that is to say, an apparently healthy person may be ill without yet showing symptoms.
This is the paradigm, or model, with which the holistic doctor approaches the patient.

 Soc 295-02, The Heart of Critical Sociology
Conflict is normal, and may take place in a wide range of ways — from voting for different candidates to protesting in the streets, from an ordered meeting in the boardroom to a heated argument in the bedroom.
Conflict is a key source of social change, and the nature of any given setting or society is determined by the outcome(s) of its conflict(s).
Conflict theorists are most interested in studying the nature of one or more kinds of inequality as well as how they are connected, and in coming to understand the mechanisms by which those with power keep it and those with less power strive to gain more.

 ReliefWeb » Document Preview » Palestine-Israel: old conflict new paradigm
Since, the conflict was mildly managed being, in general, an open one between, as usual, dissimilar forces, between the strong and the weak.
The new paradigm of Israel 's conflict management was presented in December 2003, after the failed ceasefire and the failure of the Abu Mazen Government, when PM A. Sharon launched the Unilateral Disengagement Plan (UDP).
The UDP marks the breaking of the Oslo process and starts a new way of conflict management: no negotiations and imposition of the conditions on the loser as it has been the case since the dawn of the wars.

 USAID Conflict Prevention: January 2001 Conference Report
WSP is consistent with the paradigm in its adoption of a neutral position, providing for international support, but keeping the problem-solving impetus on the indigenous community.
For successful conflict prevention, a formal division of labor should be established whereby USAID assumes the lead for long-term pre-conflict prevention problems.
Conflict prevention strategies can be strengthened by building an incentive system to reward conflict prevention, developing a system of metrics to assess the success of conflict prevention strategies, and channeling more resources into post-conflict reconstruction.

 JCPA Radical Islam-Iran, Hizbullah, Hamas and the Global Jihad: A New Conflict Paradigm for the West - Executive ...
For most of the 1990s it was the conventional wisdom that the key to regional stability was to be found in the resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict and, as a result, Western diplomatic energies were primarily focused on that area.
Moreover, according to this traditional paradigm for viewing the Middle East, the Arab-Israeli conflict was also easily resolvable in a relatively short time-frame; with a diplomatic investment of a few years, it was hoped, it would be possible to conclude a region-wide peace agreement that included Israel, the Palestinians, and the Arab states.
Thus, it was becoming increasingly difficult to argue that the Arab-Israeli conflict was the root cause of regional instability.

 Israel Palestine Blogs » Israeli-Palestinian conflict
These are among many examples of efforts to set up a symmetric two-party framework that imagines that the conflict and the solution are even-handed.
So to end the conflict, one side gives something up, the other side gives something else up, and everyone walks away with a down-the-middle compromise.
Next week Tutu will be in Boston again, for the Sabeel conference on “the apartheid paradigm in Palestine-Israel.” I plan to attend, and am curious to see what ground is covered and how much both sides — including protesters and counter-protesters — focus on terminology versus substance.

It is a movement from the paradigm of conflict resolution to one of conflict management.
As conflict resolution professionals, we should respect our fellow human beings to make those choices for themselves by adopting a paradigm which gives choices: a paradigm which allows for the empowerment of self and recognition of others at one's own time and place.
It is a paradigm of respect, of working with people where they are, of stepping back and letting things happen as they should, rather than trying to force the change we would like to see happen.

 Role of serotonin and GABA in anti-anxiety effects of benzodiazepines   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
The Geller-Seifter paradigm is a conflict test in which rats are trained to bar press to receive sweetened milk (a very desirable reinforcement for a rat).
Conflict is introduced into this situation by delivering electric shock to the animal's feet every time it bar presses during the CRF schedule.
Stein argued that the chronic effect of BZPs - anxiety reduction - was due to reduction in serotonin turnover and that the recovery of NA turnover was responsible for the development of tolerance to sedative the side effects of BZPs.

A qualification of the notion of a paradigm
Likewise, it is possible to synthetize the military paradigm by means of two characteristic statements which surrogate at best the two basic choices of the military MoCR and, moreover, fit well the idea people share about the military attitude: "Scientificization of the security and suppression of the emotional drives".
In the past the incommensurability between the military MoCR and the nonviolent MoCR was solved by the suppression of the alternative MoCR as a representation of emotional arguing.
