    Abstract

    Event synopsis: A conference for professionals and practitioners. Examining empathy across international contexts (responses to terrorism in UK and to urban violence in Brazil, police-community interactions in USA, conflict transformation in Northern Ireland and Kenya) has revealed how people block empathy through the interaction of emotions, moral reasoning and social dynamics. If these blocks can be dismantled, then empathy with others is made more possible. Tracking successful empathy has identified strategies that can support better understanding of others through dialogue, even in times of increasing uncertainty.
