    The theoretical roots of Conflict Transformation is in this article sought by means of analysis of the (in)famous German philosopher G.W.F. Hegel’s dialectical view of progress. The focal questions for this analysis are: what are the conceptual processes in the workings and transformations of conflicts, how can we understand obstacles to development in a broader theoretical framework, and how do we know that what we are doing is actually creating a positive development?
