Group Relations conferences offer opportunities to learn about group, organisational and social dynamics; the exercise of authority and power; the interplay between tradition, innovation and change; and the relationship of organisations to their social, political and economic environments.

This book, the fifth in a series of Tavistock Group Relations Conferences, contains a collection of papers presented at the fifth Belgirate conference, plus three additional papers reflecting on and making sense of several participants' conference experiences. Taken together, these chapters study the discourse of Group Relations conferences as well as reflecting on the changing nature and shifting patterns of this discourse. In Doing the Business of Group Relations Conferences, authors reflect on the vicissitudes of meanings this expression generates.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"I have experienced GRCs in different roles for almost half a century and tried to embrace my experiences as a personal living methodology - albeit with some success. Many chapters of this book presented me with new challenges that in rather old age are forcing me to start reinventing myself once more, all over again!" --Gouranga P. Chattopadhyay, Emeritus Professor, Academy of Human Resource, Ahmedabad, India.

"This book holds no punches in its thoughtful exploration of some difficult issues and is bold in offering some solutions. It can be felt as a resounding clarion call to the community of practitioners and organisers of Group Relations Conferences to hold themselves to a higher standard, to work with and through the ambivalence and defences of the human condition and strive to do what we provide space for members to explore in the conferences in our gathering and dealing with each other". --Dr Leslie B. Brissett, Director of the Group Relations Programme, The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations, London, UK.
