Message from the Chair
Welcome to the Conflict Management Division! CMD is dedicated to understanding how better to resolve conflicts of interest between individuals, groups, and broader communities. Our research is unified by the recognition that reconciling different and conflicting interests is an everyday event, and that the ability to do so constructively influences the quality of our interpersonal and organizational relationships.
Our mission to better understand conflict management has a far reach. We draw on topics as diverse as team and group dynamics, power and influence, communication, trust, emotions, justice and fairness, culture, and individual characteristics. Click here to see our domain statement.

What’s happening in 2016?
This year it’s our turn to undertake a 5-year review. The review gives you an opportunity to tell us about the strengths of the Division, and where we could improve our service to CMD members. Please take the time to respond to the survey when you receive it in October 2015. It is your opportunity to shape the Division’s activities for the next 5 years. Expect to hear the outcomes and our plan for the next 5 years at the 2016 CM Business Meeting.
