ABSTRACT

Public conflict has been quantitatively and qualitatively more complicated and sharpened by social change. Unlike the past, a growing attention is now given to conflict resolution through agreement and negotiation between stakeholders. The first and important task for conflict resolution would be to have a good understanding of the conflict situations. There is an increasing need of research in understanding of the subjectivity of stakeholders as well as the objective conditions of conflict. This study explored the possibility of combining frame analysis and Q methodology in public conflict research. The results of the analysis confirmed that frame analysis and Q methodology are theoretically combinable and methodologically complementary, which suggested a more complete study by combining frame analysis and Q methodology when exploring subjectivity in public conflict research. The main contribution of this study is to suggest a methodology for exploring and analyzing the phenomenon of public conflict based on subjectivity.
