Providing a Deeper Understanding for the Big Problems that Rise from Conflict in Society

The Dispute Resolution Research Center is a nationally-recognized center for research on conflict, collaboration, dispute resolution and negotiation. As part of our intellectual mission, we convene research conferences bringing together preeminent scholars to advance the study of conflict-related topics, such as ethnic conflict, relational and intergroup conflict, negotiations, social movements, and ethical breaches. These conferences aim to provide a deeper understanding of and potential solutions for the big problems that arise from conflict in society.
