Conflict Resolution is one of the fastest growing academic fields in the world today. Although it is a relatively young discipline, having emerged as a specialized field in the 1950s, it has rapidly grown into a self-contained, vibrant, interdisciplinary field. The SAGE Handbook of Conflict Resolution brings together all the conceptual, methodological, and substantive elements of Conflict Resolution into one volume of 35 specially commissioned chapters. The Handbook is designed to reflect where the field is today by drawing on the contributions of experts from different fields, presenting, in a systematic way, the most recent research and practice.
