CFP Role of Faith and Spirituality in Negotiation and Conflict Management

“Publication

Call for Papers: The Role of Faith and Spirituality in Negotiation and Conflict Management.
Deadline: 15 July 2022

Negotiation and Conflict Management Research (NCMR) is preparing a special Issue on The Role of Faith and Spirituality in Negotiation and Conflict Management. The special issue editor will be Bing Han, at the University of South Carolina at Aiken. 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. The editor will welcome thought-provoking manuscripts including empirical and theoretical original research employing various methodologies.

NOTE: As of January 2021, NCMR has transitioned from the Wiley Online Library to become an Open Access and Open Science journal hosted by the Carnegie Mellon University Library Publishing Service.
