After attending the International Consortium for Social Development, Steve had these notes:

The plenary speech by Undersecretary General Noeleen Heyzer and the speech by Singapore Deputy Prime Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam both discussed reducing the income gap, compassionate solutions to immigration, human trafficking, guest worker abuses and also sustainable policies for the future so that our children and grandchildren do no pay for our mistakes (greed). The overall theme of the conference is that social workers must lead the way in transforming society through their work and their views on income equity, sustainable resource policies, reducing poverty, and (believe it or not) managing conflict. I am right at home with that last one!

I sat next to a woman on the bus who is a professor of social work at a major university in Ceylon. She and her husband lived in Minneapolis when they attended the U of M. She knew Sheldon Torgerson (the pastor at the church I attended when at Augsburg college) as she attended the Lutheran Church that was near the Augsburg campus as well! Small world. Or, as the Undersecretary General said the night before, this is indeed a globally connected world.

I talked at length with Dr. Peggy McFarland, who is professor of Gerontology at a college in Pennsylvania and a Fulbright Scholar in Ho Chi Min City. She was very interested in Elder Care Mediation. I’ll be sending her more information!

I spoke with a social worker from Korea who was extremely interested in Custody mediation.

I have tons of other notes and business cards to follow up on when I get home.

A very productive trip so far.

Had a marvelous discussion at dinner last night with Dr Noeleen Heyzer, United Nations Under-Secretary-General (second from end on right). She was very interested in learning more about how mediation might help resolve community disputes in emerging nations. Dr Tiong Tan on left is a former Mediation intern at EMI.
