Kellogg/DRRC Sponsored IACM 30th Anniversary Conference
this Month

Over the past three decades, the International Association for Conflict Management (IACM) and the Dispute Resolution Research Center (DRRC) at Kellogg have pushed our field forward. IACM is the premier global convener for researchers and practitioners in conflict management, and Kellogg’s DRRC has become one of the world’s most successful university-based research centers.

Looking at the state of the world today, our shared work continues to grow in importance. Whether it’s the widening global divide between the “haves” and “have nots”; the national conflicts creating historic numbers of refugees; or simply the increasing push back toward anyone “not like me”, the need for leaders and citizens who understand how to more effectively manage conflict has never been greater.

Collaboration, conflict and negotiation are some of the most relevant and important topics of study for the world today. That’s why Kellogg was proud to sponsor this conference, held in Berlin on July 9-11, 2017, and to continue our shared legacy of deep investment in the field.

Kellogg to Host Culture and Negotiation Conference in Spring 2018

In celebration of the DRRC’s 30 years of teaching and research on negotiation and dispute resolution, and in honor of Jeanne Brett’s outstanding leadership, Kellogg will host the Culture and Negotiation Conference April 12-14, 2018 in our new Global Hub in Evanston, IL. This invitation-only conference will bring together scholars from two vibrant areas of research, culture and negotiation, and challenge them to develop an integrative agenda for future research and practice.

Key features of the conference programming include:
  • 5-Minute Rapid Fire Presentations that will enable participants to share their current research and teaching initiatives.
  • Keynote addresses in which renowned culture scholars will provide insights into the state of knowledge and research opportunities in their fields.
  • Panels of distinguished negotiation scholars who will challenge participants to generate new research opportunities in global negotiations.
  • Research think tank gatherings to brainstorm new research programs on culture and negotiation.
  • Plus, a closing keynote on "Using Cultural Research to Change the World" by David Sloan Wilson

The conference is designed to generate energy, provide knowledge, challenge attendees and elevate discussions that will expand negotiation research globally.
