This book explores the ways in which emotions enter a conflict scenario and investigate their role as causes or consequences of the conflict. It sheds new light on questions of the extent to which context and culture-related dimensions are conducive to conflict dynamicity and management either by calming emotions or increasing their severity.
Conflict, Mediated Message, and Group Dynamics: Intersections of Communication establishes up a framework to explore the ways in which emotions enter a conflict scenario and investigate their role either as causes or consequences of conflict. The volume's chapters shed new light on the questions of the extent to which context on the one hand and culture-related dimensions on the other are conducive to conflict dynamicity and management either by calming emotions—and conflict—or by increasing their severity.
