691 words - 3 pages

Part 1How would you describe the group task?The group task is to reach an unanimous decision. They have to 'do their duty', they have to reach a consenus decision, so they are forced to have a dialogue with an extreme diverse set of people.Why conflict arises?When they perform a preliminary vote, they find out that one juror think the accused is not guilty 'beyond reasonable doubts'.
