The purpose of this book is precisely to look at ADR on its own terms as a way
of resolving business disputes, particularly at the international level.
Drawing upon diverse approaches, ADR experts from a variety of countries
explore the situations to which ADR lends itself and the different
permutations it offers to allow each dispute to be handled in the manner most
fitting to the circumstances. The contributors also show how ADR serves such
important considerations as the interests involved, the need to avoid a public
display of differences, and the wish to anticipate problems.
By throwing new light on the achievements of ADR and the possibilities it
offers, this book will help to situate ADR amongst the panoply of dispute
resolution methods now available to the international business community.
