Making the world a better place
Generating the Will for a Joint Solution In this phase, individuals in each arena will probe the main issues more deeply and determine whether there is a will to deal with them. The aim is the same in and out of government, but each group will pursue it differently. If those in the public dialogue decide to work together in a new way, they will move into the work of stage four without having to justify their decision publicly. Officials, on the other hand,will often be meeting directly and intensively to write terms of reference for negotiation. From that experience, they will agree to begin negotiation or suspend the effort; either choice will be a public act for which they will be accountable.
