Multi-cultural societies are fraught with problems relating to racism, discrimination and inequity. Most of these problems are directly linked to cultural differences or analysed on the basis of cultural difference. Mismanaged cultural difference produce protracted, almost intractable social conflicts undermining community values - the connectedness and positive inter-relationship between different cultural groups. Promoting shared values through conflict resolution practices could assist in building bridges, reconstructing connectedness and inter-relationship between different groups.
