Conﬂict Resolution Studies (CRS) is a nascent interdisciplinary social science devoted to developing conﬂict theory and enhancing effective conﬂict transformation practice. Maximized practical intervention and sustainability of conﬂict resolution are the goals of this work. It would seem obvious that accurate and useful diagnosis of conﬂict elements would contribute to effective resolution practice, yet little has been done to narrow the criteria for conﬂict analysis and its correlation with intervention options. This article explores three intensities of group conﬂict: Event-Based Conﬂict, Communicative-Affective Conﬂict, and Identity-Based Conﬂict, and articulates diagnostic criteria for each level. Process design elements are used to differentially apply this concept to effective methods of conﬂict resolution.
