How To Handle Protests

This article reminded me of the protest most of us saw during the Mass Incarceration Conference. Ever since the Guggenheim has considered expanding to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, labor protests have occurred in the museum. The museum has held meetings with the labor group GULF for the past six years, but claims that such discussions have so far been largely unproductive. What should museums do when faced with such protests? Is there another way to handle the situation respectfully without holding meetings with the protesters?
