    Conflict theory and conflict intervention can be explored using a wide range of perspectives, from a focus on different specialisms, through theory, research and to theory applied to practice. We welcome the contributors to this issue from many parts of the world, covering a wide range of mediation themes and topics. The authors in this issue examine conflict with a focus on a variety of different fields of knowledge which are the bases for the articles. In this issue, Aytekin Cantekin presents and critiques conflict “ripeness” or “readiness” theories, concepts that have been helpful as analytic tools in the world of peacemaking. His article, “Ripeness and Readiness Theories in International Conflict Resolution” argues that “...using readiness theory (first) to understand each party and its positions separately, then using ripeness theory to map the bilateral coordination can be a better way to grasp basic foundations and change dynamics of the conflict to catch the ripe moment...” for conflict intervention in international conflicts.
