Abstract

In this tribute to the 2014 recipient of the International Association for Conflict Management's Rubin Theory-to-Practice Award recipient, we celebrate the multifaceted contributions of Stephen J. Goldberg. The contributors highlight the role that he has played as a mentor inspiring young scholars, as a champion for grievance mediation, a designer of dispute resolution systems including the enduring power–rights–interests framework, and as a scholar. The article closes with reflections from Steve Goldberg about the intertwined nature of theory and practice, the ongoing cycle in which each informs the other and in which each makes the other stronger.
