Here’s an announcement from the HNLR:
Please save the date for the Harvard Negotiation Law Review’s annual Symposium, which is being planned in collaboration with the Program on Negotiation and the Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program. The Symposium will be held on February 25, 2012.
The full-day event will take a close look at cutting-edge research into the challenging and essential work of evaluating the effectiveness of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) in different contexts. How can we best measure ADR’s successes and failures? As we move into the next generation of ADR, researchers from different disciplines are looking at a variety of ADR programs and asking, “Does ADR ‘work’ here?” and “What would ‘working’ really look like?”
We will spend the day exploring how researchers can and should evaluate the effectiveness of ADR in a number of contexts. Contexts we will address include:
- Cross-national corporate disputes,
- Corporate social responsibility,
- Labor disputes, and
- The criminal justice system.
A formal invitation to the Symposium will be forthcoming once details are finalized. We look forward to seeing you on February 25!
