Abstract

This article explores some of the key sources of and reasons for the rapid growth of conflict-resolution programs in higher education in the United States. It highlights some benefits, as well as dilemmas, of academic work in conflict resolution. In addition, the author promotes the viewpoint that conflict-resolution content and approach should be infused by perspectives and values from peace studies, such as concerns for issues of social justice and fairness, and strategies for nonviolent social change.
