Abstract

This research, situated in a conflict, social construction, and social ecological theoretical framework, employed ethnographic semistructured interviews with 10 Dinka refugees to document social constructions of identity, trauma, and transnationalism, three influential variables in understanding conflict perceptions within this specific group. Findings and implications include the impact on cognitive structural features such as frames, beliefs, scripts, rules, and problem appraisals which allow for a deeper understanding of the construction and interpretation of interpersonal conflict analysis and resolution.
