[       begin this issue with three articles that bring us back to the jour-
       nal's first focus: mediation.
    The article by Lewis and Umbreit promotes a model of mediation that
is less focused on process and settlement and more  focused on making
connections  between people  through honest communication.   Tjersland,
Gulbrandsen,  and  Haavind  examine  the failure of court-ordered media-
tion in high conflict couples in Norway, and offer some suggestions in the
hope  of reducing conflict and improving cooperation for these families.
Khachaturova  and  Poimanova   used an experimental  research design to
examine  which mediation style works best in disputes between two people
versus people embedded   in larger social groups. Their findings have sig-
nificant implications for those working with parties and on disputes that
impact third parties and are part of a broader social web of relationships.
    In their contribution, Katz and Sosa examine the importance of emo-
tion and emotional intelligence as contributing factors in successful nego-
tiations and therefore mediation as well. Rather than always being seen as
an escalating factor, the healthy expression of emotion can benefit negotia-
tion, and parties with higher degrees of emotional intelligence can harness
the creative and healing power of emotion in the interests of resolution.
    The next two pieces examine cultures with histories of significant vio-
lence to better understand the long-term impact of that violence and how
to turn around these histories into better futures. Mukashema and Mullet
gathered data from the children of genocide perpetrators in Rwanda to see
if they felt guilt for their parents' behaviors and how this guilt affects them,
therefore affecting the country's ongoing recovery. Using Chicago as a con-
text, Megan  Lambertz-Berndt  examines  a part of Chicago that has been
long known  for its violence and unrest. She juxtaposes this image with the
amazing  work  of peacemakers and community   builders there, discussing
the need to reframe the images of those impacted by violence as well as the
broader community.
    Each of these articles makes a novel contribution to our knowledge in
mediation, negotiation, and conflict resolution both in the United States
and foreign contexts.
