Description: This chapter deals with the concept of framing and its applications in environmental conflicts. Framing was demonstrated to have value as an important addition to conflict management and resolution. Gray B. and Kaufman S. proposed using prospective frame elicitation to advance consensus building in resolving environmental disputes. The research findings are derived from two separate studies, the second of which builds upon analytic tools derived from the first. The first study, now at a midway point, is based upon four major environmental conflicts in Israel. The second study, a six-month conflict assessment commissioned by the Israeli Ministry of Environment in December 2000, concerns the pollution of the Lower Kishon River in the Haifa metropolitan area. The four national/metropolitan case studies are: the Dudaim waste disposal site, the Israel Transnational Highway, Ben-Gurion International Airport and the management and development of the Tel Aviv area coasts. © Eran Feitelson 2004.
