5 Ways to Listen Better

Researching conflict resolution

Because Conflict Resolution is a field that overlaps with many other disciplines, there is no one database that covers all the literature. The best way to pursue your research is to consider which field concerns itself with your research question. Does it relate to educational settings, business mediation, interpersonal conflict, international conflict, or another area? Consider which fields would have researchers writing about your topic and then explore the databases and other research tools that relate to those fields.
