Practice can be a resource for investigating the limits of current negotiation and conflict management theories. Practice can also help academics engage in a reality-check process that contributes to our understanding of the phenomenon. This issue is intended to bring various types of practices closer to ongoing and planned research. The call for papers is focused on contributions from practice to current negotiation/ conflict management theory and research as well as from research to practice. Collaborations between researchers and practitioners are strongly recommended.
