  • Conflict Resolution Quarterly publishes quality scholarship on relationships between theory, research, and practice in the conflict management and dispute resolution field to promote more effective professional applications. A defining focus of the journal is the relationships among theory, research, and practice. Articles address the implications of theory for practice and research directions, how research can better inform practice, and how research can contribute to theory development with important implications for practice. Articles also focus on all aspects of the conflict resolution process and context with primary focus on the behavior, role, and impact of third parties in effectively handling conflict.
