This paper offers an introduction to Critical Conflict Resolution, a form of conflict resolution practice that addresses larger, systemic concerns while also focusing on the conflicts produced by systemic contradictions. It describes two forms of practice for these conflicts, emergent and evolutionary, as well as identifying the need to develop systemic consciousness in both practitioners and parties in order to produce real change. It provides suggestions for practitioners and conflict scholars as they engage with this developing area of practice.
