Conflict Resolution Quarterly is an academic publication. CRQ 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. As the fields of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and Conflict Resolution experience exponential growth, Conflict Resolution Quarterly 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 conflict resolution processes at the local, national and international levels.
