The vagabonding approach to diplomacy?

Here’s an enlightening TED Talk video: The walk from “no” to “yes.” Speaker William Ury is a professional negotiator who has helped resolve conflicts in hot spots around the world, from Chechnya to the Middle East. If any of you are interested in international diplomacy, foreign affairs and the like, this video is a must-watch.

When Ury talked about a proposed method for dispute resolution, it struck me as a vagabonding-style approach to encouraging people to set aside their differences and work together. Can travel, discussion and tolerance overcome years of hostility?
