Global Trends in Dispute Resolution offers readers a garden rich
in ideas and insights into contemporary dispute resolution principles,
processes, and practices. The series leads the way in first-class debate and
analysis of dispute resolution trends across our rapidly globalizing world.
More particularly, it analyzes dispute resolution developments in various
geographical regions around the world and in relation to diverse transnational
practice areas. These practice areas include not only well-established legal
categories such as intellectual property, construction, and resources law, but
also emerging dispute resolution developments ranging from dispute systems
design to cross-border mediation in private and public law.
With a particular focus on new initiatives and ADR practices, the Global
Trends in Dispute Resolution series aims to provide practitioners,
scholars, policy-makers, and ‘pracademics’ (that elusive yet rapidly emerging
category of practical academics and academically-oriented practitioners – you
know who you are) with the resources both to cultivate the dispute resolution
gardens of the world and to explore new paths within and beyond them.
