    This is an important book that contributes to a new way of thinking and acting in high friction contexts I am convinced its relevance stretches beyond the field of conflict resolution, vast as it is Anyone who is struggling with wicked problems , working to introduce radical innovations, building social movements or engaged in transitioning complex systems health care, transportation, food production, will benefit from studying the insights embedded in The Five Percent A key insight that is brought to light by this book is that intractable conflicts are to a large extent intractable because we make them so By default our psychological and emotional responses drive us toward consistency and coherence in our perception Conflict reinforces this drive which becomes unhelpful during prolonged confrontations Complexity science provides a language and a conceptual framework to describe and model these self organizing behavioral patterns The science also points to a set of principles and practices that can help to counterbalance and unravel these negative force fields or attractors Under the overall heading of Attractor Landscape Model Coleman groups interventions to change the dynamics of intractable conflicts in three clusters Each of the clusters negotiates a set of basic contradictions complicate to simplify build up and tear down change to stabilize Yet this rather neat structure should not fool us into thinking that we are dealing with a template like methodology Think of the Attractor Landscape Model as a set of rules of thumb rather than tools Putting this into practice is inevitably a messy affair Intractability and wickedness requires us to relinquish the traditional, linear problem solving paradigm and engage in a fluid and iterative strategy We need to be prepared to question our basic assumptions at all time One of the paradigmatic shifts encapsulated by this book is a deconstruction of the unhelpful dichotomy between conflict and peace Neither peace nor conflict are monolithic Peace is not tantamount to blanket societal consensus And conflict is not the wholesale absence of social capital Coleman points out that even in the most entrenched conflict there are latent attractors of positivity An important question underlying the Attractor Landscape Model is how this hidden potential can be identified and reinforced Paradoxically the only reservation I have about this book is its richness Content and style are approachable enough but there is simply a lot in this book to chew on It strikes me as rather labyrinthine after a first and even after a second reading Coleman advocates the use of sophisticated visualization techniques to generate a holistic view of intractable conflicts He might have relied on these methods to help the reader navigate the sprawling landscape encompassed by his book Despite that slight misgiving I wholeheartedly recommend The Five Percent to all professionals engaged in complex, high friction processes of change.

    The author, Peter Coleman identifies 5% of all conflicts as intractable He first gives real life examples of these conflicts low income, high crime areas in the US, marriages that break apart and neither party will give way, etc , analyses what they have in common power of history is considerable perfect storm of many complex factors that all synergize to drive and intensify the conflict they do not respond well to conflict management strategies that are useful elsewhereThen the author lays out his methodology for dealing with such problems, using the Attractor model, which I will not go into, suffice to say it is a very interesting and new analog for thinking about problems of this nature.A few takeaways some situations that are likely to develop into intractable conflict do not, if participants engage in a multi faceted examination of the multiple levels that the conflict exists on Participants who are comfortable with ambiguity or paradoxes are likely to find the conflict manageable or constructive, compared with participants who are black and white about the conflict, who just become entrenched in their position and personally confrontational as the conflict continues Framing is paramount in thinking about the conflict if the participants can recognize their frame, that is, their perspective, considerations, priorities, and patterns, they can discuss the underlying assumptions and have a fruitful dialog Changing patterns sometimes just identifying the patterns that lead to further conflict, and changing disrupting them, may eventually lead to better outcomes, as it is often the existing patterns that drive the conflict deeper over time.

    We are lead to believe that all conflicts can be mitigated Yet, there are times that we all come up against a standoff that no matter what we try just doesn t seem to move In fact, over time, each side tends to become deeply entrenched.These five percent of issues require a little finesse than the regular conflicts The issues are not simple Yet, the emotional personal moral nature of the topic tends to promote an either or situation with no room for gray thinking In this way, coming to a positive conclusion isn t about making people change camps It s about exploring the complexity of the situation and letting both sides share their view Eventually, each camp opens to the fact that the issue can be seen in different ways, without either side being right or wrong Taking away the generalizations and the facelessness to see the human side of both sides of the problem.

    The contents of this book are excellent and probably deserve a higher rating yet something about its structure made reading too much of a slog for me to give it stars I hope people will read it, nonetheless.

    Recommended by Ben Cameron Impossible conflicts devolve into three things win lose dichotomies, simplified sound bites and reinforcing feedback loops.
