 International Negotiation: A Quarter Century of

 Research



 Much can change over 25 years. When International Negotiation was estab-
 lished in 1996, it was just a few years after the breakup of the Soviet Union, the
 disintegration of the Eastern Bloc, and the founding of the European Union.
Within a few years after publication began, international terrorist incidents
grew rapidly, populist citizen-led protests resulted in the downfall of many
governments, the use of information technology and social media mush-
roomed yielding countless new channels to communicate and organize, many
new multinational regimes were formulated, and the rise of the Global South
resulted in an upsurge of cooperation among developing countries, to name a
few momentous events and trends. Many more critical changes in the global
arena can be listed, all having important impacts on the processes and out-
comes of international negotiation and mediation.
   There are always new political, economic and social factors that can affect
international negotiations. So, it is important for researchers and diplomats
to stay attuned to changing situations and anticipate what they might mean
for the detailed give-and-take of particular upcoming negotiations. Through
its special thematic issues, as well as its unsolicited articles, the journal has
sought to publish research that is evidence-based, forward-looking and prac-
tical, while pushing the boundaries of theory. At the same time, the journal
has been proactive in looking back and reanalyzing several key areas in the
international negotiation literature, to assess their continued relevance and
add to our understanding. This includes articles on justice and fairness, post-
agreement negotiation, preventive diplomacy, negotiation styles and culture,
and training and research methods, for example.
   Change reveals itself in the what (different sectors and policy areas), the
where (involving new countries and coalitions), the who (with greater inclu-
sion of different stakeholders), and the why (for example, new threats or
problem areas) of negotiation and how that impacts on ways the negotiation
process unfolds. We have seen in recent years how the use of new social media
technologies (Twitter and Facebook, for example) can influence elections,
spur trade wars, and undo existing agreements, with little regard for country
borders. We have seen how the emergence of populist leaders sometimes leads
