T he fi rst two articles in this edition of CRQ examine the use of experi-
ential learning in diff erent contexts. In their article, Romano, Hirsch,
and Paczynska explain how to use experiential learning activities in higher
education settings to explain global complexity and confl ict resolution
concepts.  en, taking it to a more specifi c arena, Turk and Ungerleider
share insights gained from the use of experiential learning in mediation
training in Cyprus.  ese articles complement each other and deepen our
understanding of the utility of various educational techniques for confl ict
resolution skills and concepts.
In a move to the international realm, Grigorescu and Melin analyze
data from the Correlates of War project to determine when warring fac-
tions are likely to bring a third party into peace negotiations versus engag-
ing in bilateral negotiations.
en, moving to the arena of court-connected dispute resolution,
Wall and Kressel share the results of their study into the thought processes
used by mediators in twenty civil cases.  is work builds on their previous
works published in CRQ and helps us understand what makes mediators
and mediation work.
ank you for reading and sharing CRQ with your colleagues. Please

staff .
