This study investigates the mediations of 67 mediators from western Turkey and 38 Kurd mediators from eastern Turkey. Utilizing a cultural effects model, we predicted and subsequently found that Kurd mediators—who are highly collectivistic and have a tribal-based social structure—more frequently emphasize harmony, and they stress the cost of the conflict to society. In addition, the Kurds more often rally third parties for the mediations, having them present at the mediation, as well as relying on their advice and assistance. In addition to the ethnic differences, we predicted and found that imams (i.e., mosque leaders) more frequently utilized religious-based tactics (e.g., walking under the Koran) than did their secular counterparts.
