 Brief description of your activity focus
Refugees and Asylum Seekers conflict resolution practices

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
My focus is cross-cultural conflict resolution practices, with emphasis on indigenous groups and their interaction with host communities. Most of my research explored Muslim/Arab conflict resolution practices, principally the Sulha.

About a year ago I started studying asylum seekers in Israel, particularly from Darfur. I conducted a study of their adaptation to the new realities of Israel in terms of their conflict resolution practices, and discovered the following:
In the absence of their familiar tribal structure, dignitaries, and other interveners, refugees and asylum seekers have no access to the traditional dispute resolution mechanisms they have grown up with. Their response in the case of the Darfuri asylum seekers community in Tel Aviv, was to develop their own multi-tier, quasi-customary intra-communal dispute resolution mechanism. This new mechanism combines elements of their traditional, Darfur-based, processes, along with newly constructed modifications designed to compensate for the missing elements (e.g., lack of village elders), and make use of available resources (e.g., young community activists).

I would like to extend this study to Europe. There are millions of newcomer refugees and asylum seekers in
Europe, many of whom experience circumstances similar to those experienced by the Darfuri community in Tel Aviv. I think that research into this subject may provide policy makers, advocates, NGOs and receiving
communities, and of course newcomer refugees and asylum seekers communities and leaders with valuable
knowledge about evolving conflict management practices in a new terrain.
