Parley Policy Initiative offers a platform for academics, researchers, and practitioners to share their insights, perspectives, and expertise. These publications are separated into three categories:


Short essays including exploration of a single issue or idea, commentary, and profiles of practitioners past and present.


These scholarly articles offer an in-depth examination of issues related to negotiation, crisis management, peacemaking, or postwar policy.


PPI offers primers aimed at supporting researchers and practitioners in their own endeavors.

Editorial Review

All submissions undergo a review process. For articles and monographs, PPI reserves the right to submit it for a blind peer review. 


PPI reserves the right to copy-edit all submissions. If the editors believe more substantive revisions are necessary, they will return the document with comments and tracked changes.

PPI encourages submissions from writers whose primary language is not English. We believe that a more worldly perspective is important in diplomacy, negotiation, and peacemaking; therefore, we will work with authors to ensure submissions are publication-ready.
