International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution

The International Negotiation and Conflict Resolution field (INCR) examines causes of violent conflict in the international context. The field focuses on theories of intergroup and ethnonational (broadly defined) conflicts, and the international dimensions of intrastate conflicts. The field also focuses on theories and practice of international negotiation, mediation, problem-solving, and various other approaches to international conflict resolution. The field covers additional topics, particularly gender, culture, development, and religion, as they relate to conflict and conflict resolution.
