Culture and conflict in urban Tanzania: Professionals’ voices in educational organisations

  • CH Mayer
  • CM Boness


This article is interlinked with an article that has previously been published
in this Journal (Mayer, Boness and Louw 2008). Since the previous article
focused on value-orientations in cross-cultural encounters and mediation in
the Tanzanian educational system, this follow-up article provides an overview
of cross-cultural conflicts and their professional management in educational
organisations in Tanzania. It firstly gives an insight into current theoretical
discourses and will, secondly, present selected empirical data and findings
from an ethnographic, qualitative study that has been conducted in selected
urban areas in Tanzania.
