This chapter examines the question of conflict resolution and harmony between cultures in discourse and communication from the Iranian perspective. It argues that the establishment of realistic, proper, and effective communication based on mutual cultural understanding and goodwill would settle many national and international disputes. It also proposes new concepts of appropriate cross-cultural understanding and administrative systems in ways that may lead to cultural reciprocity, transformation and cooperation.
