The International Association for Conflict Management was founded to encourage scholars and practitioners to develop and disseminate theory, research, and experience that is useful for understanding and improving conflict management in family, organizational, societal, and international settings.
IACM was founded in 1984. It is a membership-based organization of practitioners and university faculty & doctoral students from around the world. Activities include an annual conference, publication of the NCMR journal, and the Signal newsletter.
The IACM community includes active faculty, practitioners, and students who have made it their professional home. Members span over 50 countries around the world and enjoy meeting in person at our annual conference.
