  • Abstract This qualitative study explored conflict resolutions in everyday setting by applying
    grounded theory method to data on real-life conflict experiences. The data represent 53
    graduate students (27 male and 26 female) of 20 different nationalities. After careful coding,
    we found seven categories. By applying a dimensional analysis model, we not only
    identified that ─preparation for resolving conflict∥ is the central phenomenon but also
    explored how conflict origins, casual condition, contextual condition, intervening condition,
    resolution strategies and consequences are related to the central phenomenon and the
    dynamics among themselves. This helped in developing a grounded formal theory that
    provide a detailed picture of the complex process of conflict resolution in everyday setting
    by covering its origins, dynamics, resolution strategies, consequences, and effects in
    different contexts. Detailed explanations with ample examples from the data were provided.
    Implications for future researchers and practical implications are discussed.
