Handbook of Conflict Management Research

Elgar original reference

Edited by Oluremi B. Ayoko, Neal M. Ashkanasy and Karen A. Jehn

This unique book draws together current thoughts and research in conflict management. Specifically, it brings a wealth of knowledge from authorities in the field on emerging issues such as power in conflict, cognition and emotions in conflict, leading conflict from multiple perspectives and cultural orientations, the role of context in conflict and the teaching of conflict management. Altogether, the Handbook provides a critical avenue for researchers and practitioners’ continued engagement in conflict research and management theory.

Chapter 1: Types of conflict: The history and future of conflict definitions and typologies

Karen A. Jehn

Subjects: business and management, organisational behaviour, strategic management


This chapter will present past typologies of conflict and their historical development (for example, task, relationship, and process conflict). It will also review more recent research that has shown extended or varied typologies of conflict in organizations. Finally, different conceptualizations of conflict, such as conflict asymmetry (when members view the same conflict differently), will be presented and future research directions will be discussed.
