The interdisciplinary program in Conflict Resolution focuses on the study and application of alternative theories, various types of bargaining and negotiation techniques, and related ethical issues. These topics are examined through selected cases of conflict to understand how to manage and improve social patterns and policy choices between individuals, within organizations, and across cultures.
The program combines a scholarly and vocational approach—theory with practice—in exploring a range of environments where conflict arises, including the personal, business, and political arenas- from international diplomacy to national and local government policy discussion.
