ARON SIRCAR is a consultant for change, conflict, and crisis management, and also works as a mediator and systemic coach. He holds degrees in law, economics, psychology and international relations as well as various further professional diplomas and certificates in related fields of work. Now based in Berlin, he originates from the UK and has enjoyed an international upbringing, thus also having had the privilege of an early exposure to the challenges and opportunities of diversity. In his work with public institutions, NGOs, private organisations and individuals, Aron draws from extensive experience in political, economic, and legal conflict resolution in Europe, Africa, the Middle East and South Asia where he has learned to build bridges between cultural, religious, political, and social divides. However, having also learned that interpersonal conflict is most often an external mirror image of individual inner challenges, he now focuses on the deeper level of consolidating genuine inner balance, peace, and freedom as the indispensable first step towards overcoming fear, hatred, and pain, and thus towards building the necessary foundation for resolving outward conflict.
