Description In this course, we’ve covered essential conflict resolution theories (i.e., social interdependence theory) and frames (i.e., power, culture, justice/injustice).  We explored some advanced topics in intergroup conflict, violence and aggression, intractable conflict, and sustainable peace.  As we’ve presented concepts, models, theories and related research, you’ve also been encouraged to think more deeply about how this learning impacts how you think about conflict and its relationship to change. In this assignment you are asked to write a 10-page paper (APA formatted) that uses Part I of this assignment as a starting point and responds to the following prompt: “Which of the ideas, models, theories and methods from the course did you find most influential in challenging, expanding, or elaborating your theory of conflict and change?” As you embark on this final assignment, we encourage you to Revisit the implicit theory of conflict and change you drafted at the beginning of the term, Part I of this assignment.  Please pay particular attention to the feedback you received on that assignment, Individual Theory of Conflict and Change due in Module #3. Review and reflect on the various paradigms, theories, models and research findings from the class that we’ve covered and that have resonated or otherwise had an impact on you. There are many to consider and so we suggest you work with your group to systematically plot them out and then work together to review and discuss them. Identify the main set of ideas, models and methods that have affected your own thinking on conflict and change and then outline and draft your paper to address Your initial theory Your current theory or approach to conflict and change  The big ideas that affected your thinking (with specific citations), and then Compare and contrast your initial theory and your current theory to trace the development of your thinking over the semester.  How the change in your thinking may influence your practice.
