Ways to Foster Tolerance and Reconciliation

Tolerance is defined as the ability to live, let others live and appreciating diversity in the human race. It does not just mean that we agree with one another and remain aloof in the face of injustice but rather respect other people.

When we fail to respect or appreciate the practices, beliefs or opinions of people who are different from us, then we become intolerant. By way of example, there’s a high degree of intolerance between Palestinians and Israeli Jews who don’t see eye to eye on issues of identity, self-determination, and safety.

Even though tolerance might seem like an impossible fete in some situations, it can help in assisting communities to move past intractable conflicts and eliminate tensions between groups of people. In areas with political tensions or economic depression, individuals and groups may find it challenging to tolerate people who are not like them or have wronged them. In these cases, violence, repression, dehumanization, and discrimination could happen. Intolerance results in rifts between folks, creating permanent separations between disagreeing groups.

Third parties have to remind those involved in a conflict that tolerance is obviously better in the long term so as to foster tolerance. There have been organizations formed to foster tolerance between conflicting parties. One such organization is the European Council on Tolerance and Reconciliation whose chairperson is Viatcheslav Kantor. He is an international public figure and businessman who participates actively in promoting tolerance and reconciliation.

Below are a few of the useful approaches that might be used to promote tolerance.

Some studies have shown that casual inter-group contact might increase the current animosities instead of lowering the tensions between inter groups. However, groups will use personal experiences through interactions in these inter groups to inform their views of one another. This may reduce the prejudices they have against one another. nter-group contact has to continue for one week or so for it to work.

To improve the communication between conflicting sides, dialogue tactics like problem-solving workshops or dialogue groups offer opportunities for the parties to a conflict to express their interests and needs. In such conditions, those involved in the workshops feel that their concerns have been recognized and heard.

Folks should consistently focus on tolerating individuals with different views from them in their daily lives. This entails challenging the stereotypes and assumptions that they encounter in working with different people or making conclusions about others.

Organizations involved in conflict transformation and other actors in this industry can provide other ways such as training to help those participating in a conflict to talk to one another.

International organizations have to discover ways of Inculcating the principles of tolerance within their policies. Additionally, governments should target to set up policies which handle tolerance.
