EDITOR'S INTRODUCT


                 Colloquy on Dialogue Processes (Part 2)




lam   pleased to present the second  half of our two-part Colloquy  on
  Dialogue  Processes. The articles in this colloquy examine the methods
and benefits of intergroup dialogue as an important part of peacebuilding and
decision-making  processes from the local to the international level. As
Geoffrey Corry,  one of our authors, said to me, Dialogue  must  come
before negotiation. Through dialogue, parties are able to develop rapport,
build trust, and reach a deeper understanding of each other's perspectives
and  needs. These are the necessary precursors to negotiation, and, more
important, they  are the building blocks of good  relationships between
neighbors. As the use of dialogue processes has increased, our knowledge of
why  they work has not kept pace. Additionally, the gap between theoreti-
cians and practitioners is large and growing as innovations in techniques
and methods  have outpaced academic  research into best practices.
   This  Colloquy   on Dialogue  Processes has  gathered insights from
researchers and practitioners on issues ranging from local homelessness, to
political solutions, to the Troubles in Ireland/Northern Ireland and many
issues in between. It represents the most comprehensive look at the theory
and practice of dialogue practices currently available. I hope you find this
useful in your own work and share it widely.
   As  always, happy reading!
