Conflict Resolution Quarterly: Call for Submissions - Indigenous/Local Conflict Management Practices

Conflict Resolution Quarterly
Call for Submissions: Indigenous/Local Conflict Management Practices

Conflict Resolution Quarterly publishes scholarship on relationships between theory, research, and practice in the conflict management and dispute resolution field to promote more effective professional applications. Conflict Resolution Quarterly is sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution. This Call for Papers is designed to solicit contributions which highlight the unique processes, methodologies, worldviews, or applications of conflict resolution or alternative dispute resolution processes used either outside of North America and/or Western societies. Alternatively, applications from within Western societies may be considered so long as they present an innovative approach to thinking about or conducting dispute resolution, with particular emphasis on the fit between local cultures and process design.

Articles may 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. All theoretical and methodological orientations are welcome. Submission of scholarship with the following emphases is encouraged:

  • Comparative analysis of dispute resolution processes between Western and non-Western settings.
  • Analysis of traditional or indigenous conflict resolution techniques and how those techniques may inform both local and external audiences seeking to improve disputing systems.
  • Discussions or analysis of the interplay between culture, institutions, and dispute resolution.
  • Implications for trainers seeking to work in diverse cultural environments.
  • Case studies of dispute resolution efforts in non-Western settings, with lessons learned for future efforts.
  • Evaluation studies or techniques for indigenous conflict resolution systems.

A defining focus of the journal is the relationship between theory, research and practice. All regular articles should specifically address the implications for both theory and practice, summarize the findings of previous research on the chosen research questions, include a 100 word abstract, and have approximately 7500 words. Shorter articles of approximately 3,500 words are also accepted as a “research note” or “practice note”.  These articles include information designed specifically for researchers or practitioners, while also reflecting knowledge of the current state of knowledge in the relevant subject-matter. CRQ uses a double-blind peer review process to assure fair and equal access to all authors.

Submissions received by June 1, 2012 will be considered for a Colloquy edition of CRQ focusing on Indigenous and Local Approaches to Conflict Resolution. Submissions received after this date will be considered for publication outside of this Colloquy. For information on manuscript requirements go to:
