A framework for thinking about research on conflict resolution initiatives

Abstract: 

In this chapter, we sketch out a framework for thinking about research on conflict resolution initiatives (CRIs).  We first consider types of research and for what kind of issue each is most suited.  Second, we discuss briefly some substantive issues or questions for research that practitioners consider to be important.  Next, we consider some of the difficulties in doing research in this area as well as what kind of research strategies may be helpful in overcoming these difficulties.  Finally, we offer a brief overview of existing research in this area.
