Dialogue Methodology and Steinar Bryn

Dialogue is a conversation based on humility, respect and openness which allows us to learn about each other. By learning about each other, unmanageable situations can become manageable. Dialogue enhances relationships in a community and strengthens the social fabric. Dialogue opens the door to peaceful co-existence.

Dr. Bryn has extensive experience working as a dialogue facilitator. He is highly recognized for his work in communities of Eastern Europe and has also facilitated dialogue in the Middle East and between Somalian clans. Dr. Steinar Bryn has, together with the Nansen Dialogue Network, been nominated to the Nobel Peace Prize 2009-2015. He has been nominated by the deputy president of the Norwegian parliament, a member of the Bosnian parliament and a professor in mediation in Norway.

ISWI e.V. has previously hosted Steinar Bryn for a keynote during ISWI 2019
