Abstract

Conflict cases and methods of conflict resolution may be used as diagnostic tools for understanding social relations and values in community social organization. This paper discusses conflict and conflict resolution in a Norwegian community that has recently undergone industrialization and consequent social structural reorganization. It was found that certain types of dispute resolving mechanisms were compatible with certain types of social bonds and that transformation of social relations brought about a parallel process in the methods of dispute settlement. Conflict material is used for two purposes; first, to appreciate the changes in social relations and in values, and second, to relate changes in conflict and methods of settlement to changes in social relations.
