    The Role of Faith and Spirituality in Negotiation and Conflict Management

     

    Submission Deadline EXTENDED to July 15, 2022

    Spiritual experiences have profound influences on individual lives. A nation's spiritual and religious traditions have significant political, psychological and social implications for its people. Conflicts can occur between individuals or groups with different faith and spiritual traditions, between individuals with and those without adherence to a faith, and between nations with different spiritual traditions and history. Within each spiritual tradition, prominent texts and figures lead the search for truth and for solutions to human problems including peace and conflict. Therefore, the role of faith and spirituality in negotiation and conflict management theory and practice merits further examination. In this special issue, negotiation and conflict researchers and practitioners should ask the question: How does the rich history and culture of a spiritual tradition contribute to negotiation and conflict management theory and practice?

    The call for papers is focused on the important contributions of faith and spirituality to the field of negotiation and conflict management. Priorities will be given to manuscripts that create, test, or expand theory in negotiation and conflict management research. We welcome thought-provoking manuscripts including empirical and theoretical original research employing various methodologies.

     Topics include but are not limited to the following:

    •  What are the conflict management practices and strategies in a faith and spiritual tradition that are being overlooked in negotiation and conflict management research? How can these practices and strategies help build and expand current negotiation and conflict theories?
    • What are the limits of current negotiation and conflict management theories from the perspectives of various faith and spiritual traditions?
    • How are theories in negotiation and conflict management applied in religious or spiritual contexts?
    • What are strategies or ground rules to help individuals or groups with different faith and spiritual traditions interact and resolve conflicts peacefully?
    • What are strategies or ground rules to help individuals with a faith tradition and individuals without adherence to a faith interact and resolve conflicts peacefully?
    • What are the strategies in faith-based forgiveness and reconciliation processes?

    The call is also available at NCMR's homepage: https://lps.library.cmu.edu/NCMR/
