Conflict is ubiquitous across time and place and has important consequences for everyone involved. This preconference—the first of its kind at SPSP—will bring together eminent and rising scholars from around the world to share recent theory and findings in the area of conflict and conflict resolution. We invite scholars studying the precursors, nature, and consequences of interpersonal, organizational, and intergroup conflict, as well as strategies for managing past and ongoing conflict in more constructive versus destructive ways. We also encourage presentations addressing multiple goals of conflict resolution, such as justice, equity, performance, relationship functioning, personal wellbeing, and the reduction of prejudice and discrimination. Sessions will be structured to permit constructive discussion of research, future directions, and practical implications for interventions. In addition to full research talks, this preconference will feature data-blitz sessions, a poster session, and an interactive panel discussion aimed at synthesizing different areas of conflict research. We anticipate an exciting first meeting and look forward to seeing you there!
