The World Event: A New Design for the Study of Intergroup Behaviour in Group Relations Conferences

Mary B. Mcrae, ED.D., Zachary Green and Bruce Irvine

In this paper we introduce a new group relations conference design for working with differences among groups. The basic conference design of small and large study groups is maintained, but given new titles that seem to better describe the work of the events. The central focus of the conference design offered is on a different approach to the Institutional Event, where groups are traditionally given the task to look closely at representation, leadership and authority. The new event is called the World Event, which works as a parallel structure with the conference management. We provide a conceptual framework for the development of the design, describe the design, provide some narratives of our experiences in two conferences, and then offer implications for future work.
