Studies in International Mediation brings together a number of the most prominent scholars in the field of international relations and conflict management to consider the uses of mediation in international conflict resolution. Edited by Jacob Bercovitch, the volume highlights three major themes: the reasons mediation succeeds or fails, the range and diversity of mediation as practiced today, and new strategies or arenas for mediation. The contributors take a systematic approach to analyzing the significant aspects of mediation and consider the process in the overall context of conflict management.

Contributors include: Pamela R. Aall, Karin Aggestam, Peter J. Carnevale, Chester A. Crocker, Paul F. Deihl, Daniel Druckman, Larry A. Dunn, Dean G. Pruitt, Judith Fretter, Fen Osler Hampson, Herbert C. Kelman, Marieke Kleiboer, Louis Kriesberg, Jeswald W. Salacuse, James A. Wall, and I. William Zartman.

Studies in International Mediation is dedicated to the memory of Jeffrey Z. Rubin, who was an expert on third-party processes in international negotiation. Prior to Rubin’s untimely death in 1995, he and Bercovitch had planned to work together on this volume, and during his career Rubin had worked closely with nearly all of its contributors. Rubin was a leader of the Program on Negotiation from its earliest days, and filled many roles here, including Steering Committee member, executive director, founding editor of Negotiation Journal, and founding director of the Project on the Psychological Processes of Negotiation.

Jacob Bercovitch is Professor of International Relations at the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand. His recent books include Resolving International Conflicts, International Conflict: 1945-95, and Conflict Management in the Twenty-First Century.
