What Are Sections?

ACR Sections are special interest groups in Conflict Resolution.


Why Should I Join a Section?

Sections add to your ACR membership experience by providing interaction with members with interests in special areas. Members of ACR Sections fill a vital role in sharing common concerns, forging alliances and developing joint strategies to promote and strengthen the field of conflict resolution. Being a member of a Section allows you to build networking relationships, share ideas, experiences, and challenges and collaborate on issues of mutual interest. ACR currently has 13 Sections, in specialties in the field. For more information about Sections, please contact ACR’s Section Director at
