Conflict prevention is a central pillar of Total Conflict Management (TCM). Conflict prevention is not conflict avoidance as it includes methods and mechanisms used to identify, minimise and prevent escalation of conflicts and disputes. Mediation can be employed at any stage of a conflict but is most effective in the early stages to prevent escalation of the dispute. The learning resulting from a conflict situation can then be applied to help in the prevention of future conflicts.
