International Journal of Conflict Engagement and Resolution

The interdisciplinary scholarship which deals with dispute resolution belongs to a wide range of academic areas: International Studies, Psychology, Law, Sociology, Anthropology, Economics, and even Philosophy and Literature.  Recognizing the interdisciplinary context of the field, and the broad implications of the subject on areas ranging from interpersonal, communal and business interactions and international relations,  the International Journal of Conflict Engagement and Resolution (IJCER) aspires to provide a broad academic perspective  about conflict resolution, combining knowledge from both social sciences and humanities in order to improve our understanding of disputes and the ways to creatively engage them. The conceptual framework which underlies the launching of IJCER is openness to different disciplines to enrich this still young field.

IJCER strives to present results of rigorous studies that will enhance the theoretical and meta-theoretical understanding of this still emerging discipline. For example, what is lacking in terms of a unifying and grand theory? Is such a project of articulating a grand theory possible at all? Is plurality inherent in such a quest?  IJCER invites analyses of methodological areas which are unique to the conflict resolution theme (such as "is there an appropriate evaluation practice for conflict resolution and if so what distinguishes it from, say, educational evaluation?"), as well as results of original studies of interest to scholars and practitioners in the field. Indeed, one of the distinctive features of this journal will be its abiding interest in the nexus between rigorous theory and systematic practice.
