Conflict Resolution Quarterly (CRQ)

Conflict Resolution Quarterly (CRQ) publishes peer-reviewed scholarship related to theory, research, and practice in the fields of conflict dispute resolutioto promote more effective professional applications. CRQ is sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution. As the fields of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Conflict Resolution experience exponential growth, CRQ has become an indispensable tool for practitioners, scholars and students. That’s why it is the most widely distributed journal covering the role of the neutral in processes such as mediation, arbitration, negotiation, facilitation and other processes at the local, national and international levels. 

Articles focus on any aspect of the conflict resolution process or context, but a primary focus is the behavior, role and impact of third parties in effectively handling conflict at all levels from the interpersonal to the international. CRQ also welcomes all theoretical and methodological orientations.

Dr. Susan Raines is the Editor-in-Chief of Conflict Resolution Quarterly and the Associate Director of the School of Conflict Management, Peacebuilding & Development at Kennesaw State University near Atlanta, Georgia. She has mediated more than 15,000 commercial and family cases within the United States and Europe. She has conducted trainings, program design, evaluation and strategic planning with organizations ranging from the United Nations, the Florida Supreme Court, the United States Postal Service, The Chambers of Commerce of Italy, and many others.
