Conflict Transformation and Mediation
Changing the way we connect
Frank Ubachs - Independent Consultant
My work focuses on conflict and identity. When change leads to tensions that call for movement. I employ conversation as a strategic tool to explore options and define objectives. For clients both internationally and in the Netherlands. In interviews and evaluations, I apply methods and techniques in line with professional standards.

Interscend specialises in
Radicalisation and Extremism
Radicalisation is a process by which an individual or group comes to adopt increasingly extreme political, social, or religious ideals and aspirations that a) reject or undermine the status quo or b) reject and/or undermine contemporary ideas and expressions of freedom of choice.
Identity and Religion
Identity formation is the development of the distinct personality of an individual in a particular stage of life. This process defines individuals to others and themselves. Similar to other forms of identity formation, such as ethnic and cultural identity, the religious context can come to shape an individual's identity.
Integration and Conflict
Integration is focused on the need to move toward a safe, stable and just society by mending conditions of social disintegration and exclusion. Social conflict or group conflict is a social relationship wherein the action is oriented intentionally for carrying out the actor's own will against the resistance of other party or parties.
Migration and Refugees
Migration is the movement of a person or a group of persons, either across an international border, or within a State. It is a population movement that includes migration of refugees, displaced persons, economic migrants, and persons moving for other purposes, including family reunification.
