Examples of these conflicts are often found in situations of multiple uses of natural resources. They emerge mainly from differences in values, worldviews and conflicting interests among the stakeholders, and tend to be persistent. Whith the increasing number of such conflicts has also come a raise in the need for more efficient tools for conflict resolution. This book, therefore, seeks to illustrate the development of a methodoloy for analysing the frames of different stakeholders to foster the understanding, and in the end, resolve or avoid persistent conflicts. It provides a theoretical description of the concepts of risk perception, frame and frame analysis. A case around an accidental oil release in Guanabara Bay is used as a demonstration example. It should help shed some light in the resolution of conflicts and be especially useful to academics and conflict negotiators, or anyone who may be interested in conflict resolution.
