The ambition of this article is modest-to suggest linkages at a theoretical level rather than to "prove" them empirically. A fully rigorous analysis, employing the three model-use variants strictly as independent variables, would require the articulation of a comprehensive theory of dispute resolution, a construction which the state of the literature does not yet allow. To the extent that the analysis does lead to at least some preliminary hypotheses about the linkage between process tools and conflict outcomes, it may be useful to the eventual elaboration of such a theory.
