The Three Dimensions of Succession Conflict

  • Hans-Georg BerkelEmail author
Part of the Edition KWV book series (EKWV)


The previous chapter demonstrated that succession is the attempt by incumbent and successor to jointly overcome the described dilemmas. Being committed to succession, therefore, means being committed to that joint process. Chapter 3 will analyze factors that can weaken, or strengthen, this commitment. It will then show that dialogue can establish common commitment. If there is not common commitment, succession conflict will emerge, and each dilemma will lead to a specific aspect of succession conflict.
