Dispute Resolution: Readings and Case Studies, 4th Edition explores the theory and practice of dispute resolution by highlighting examples from Canada, the US, and other jurisdictions. This casebook includes a careful selection of key writings by renowned dispute resolution theorists and practitioners. It surveys a range of dispute resolution processes — conflict analysis, negotiation, mediation, arbitration, online dispute resolution (ODR), hybrid processes, and dispute systems design and evaluation — and introduces the reader to their practical application and to some of the debates over their use. Teaching questions, articles, and case studies are included throughout the text to enhance and to test readers’ knowledge and understanding.
