26 Conflict Resol. Q. 1 (2008-2009)

T his   issue of Conflict Resolution Quarterly (CRQ)  departs from  our
     usual format by including a two-piece series on constructive engage-
ment  in protracted social conflicts. These two articles focus on some of the
most  important questions ever posed for international conflict resolution:
Under  what conditions do  people move  from war to peace, and how  can
those conditions be fostered? The authors engage these questions at both
the theoretical and the practical level. They provide useful, grounded
advice for practitioners seeking to foster engagement in negotiation and
conflict resolution processes. Based on interviews with scholar-practitioners,
this research exemplifies the necessary interplay between theory and practice
(or  between  practice  and  theory). It  is sure  to spark  discussion
and  change the way  academics  and practitioners approach these crucial
questions.
    For readers interested in dispute resolution in domestic arenas, we have
an interesting article examining the use of alternative dispute resolution
(ADR)   in medical malpractice cases. The past decade has witnessed a sig-
nificant rise in the number of medical malpractice lawsuits and a concur-
rent interest in the use of  ADR   to address  these disputes. Szmania,
Johnson, and Mulligan  surveyed ADR  program  administrators in this area
to uncover  emerging  trends of interest to many working in the area of
ADR   and health care. Unless current trends unexpectedly reverse, we can
anticipate increased demand  for ADR  services in this arena, making this
article both timely and useful.
    In her contribution, Nadja Alexander summarizes  existing models of
mediation and  then introduces a new metamodel. This metamodel  is based
on the type of interaction between the parties and the choice of interven-
tion the mediator has used. This article will be useful for those teaching
mediation  courses and those who seek to understand the vast array of prac-
tice styles and models currently employed by mediators.
