Dialogue Guides are models for conducting interactive discussions across stakeholders. Each Guide contains one topical document that all who come to the table access in order to start with the same knowledge base; and a set of reaction and application questions for a facilitator to support the assembled group to build areas of agreement and develop action-plan(s).
To gain a better understanding of the facilitator’s roles and responsibilities in conducting dialogue, we invite you to read and download the Dialogue Guide Facilitator Handbook.
