Alternative dispute resolution, or ADR as it is commonly called, has come to have an enormous influence on disputing practices in North America and beyond. This influence is bound to continue well into the new millennium. It is now, more than ever, necessary to study and be familiar with ADR developments. This book takes you on a journey into the science, skills, and law that make up this exciting new field. Readers will have opportunities to consider the conflicting meanings attributed to ADR and to decide which ones might make most sense for them. The book covers the major disputing processes with an emphasis on negotiation, mediation, and other consensual processes, points to the diverse skills needed to be proficient in ADR, examines the developing law of ADR, shows how ADR may be applied in practical case scenarios, and predicts the factors that will most affect the future development of ADR. While the book is directed primarily to the legal profession--law students, legal academics, practising lawyers, and judges - the content should be of interest to all who seek to better understand or improve their work with disputes.

There are three specific purposes of Construction Dispute Research. First, this volume aims to summarise studies on construction dispute. Second, apart from the theoretical constructs, where appropriate empirical tests are also included. This approach serves to go beyond the commonly used anecdotal approach for the subject matters. Third, it is the sincere hope of the authors that this book will help shaping research agenda of construction dispute. The studies are mostly framed from a management perspective drawing on methods and concepts in contract law, economics, psychology and management science. The book has twenty chapters that are arranged in four parts covering conceptualisation, avoidance, negotiation and mediation. Part 1 is devoted for dispute conceptualisation. A building is only as strong as its foundation. Thus it is no better start to study construction dispute by conceptualisation. The theme of Part 2 is dispute avoidance. The conventional wisdom of ‘prevention is better than cure’ seems can be applied to all problems. As far as construction dispute is concerned, equitable risk allocation and trust are the two most commonly accepted avoidance strategies. Part 3 focuses on negotiation that is the gateway to resolution as almost all disputes are negotiated first before the service of other mechanisms. Negotiation is sometimes described as an art because settlement may not be obtained solely from legal and rational approaches. Part 3 discusses the behavioral dimensions of construction dispute negotiation. Part 4 deals with Mediation- a form of assisted negotiation. Specially, the skill of the mediators in facilitating settlement, the interrelationships among dispute sources, mediator tactics and mediation outcomes are explored. The studies presented in Construction Dispute Research collectively demonstrate holistic approach in dispute management. Each chapter can be read as a study on its own. Practitioners will find the book a handy reference in dispute management and resolution. Students would find the book useful in explaining in details the causes of dispute, the processes to resolve them. The research design and empirical approaches are particularly useful to students in construction management, architectural, surveying and civil engineering programs.

Decades after our contemporary international system witnessed the end of the Second World War, the events that followed in its aftermath has fashioned an international system characterized by global conflict in the guise of the Cold War.

It is against this backdrop that Governance, Conflict Analysis and Conflict Resolution addresses conflict in the Caribbean and elsewhere, exploring the linkages between conflict and development. The book is divided into eight sections and offers diverse views on conflict, conflict resolution and governance: Part 1 - Governance and Conflict Management in a Global Context; Part II - Management and resolution of Conflict in the Regional Context; Part III - Perspectives on Social Stratification, Political Rivalry and Ethnic Insecurities; Part IV - High Intensity Conflicts; Part V - The Management and Resolution of Territorial Conflicts; Part VI - Poverty, Economics and Conflict Management; Part VII - Advancing Conflict Resolution through Education; and Part VIII - Civil Society, Governance and Social Consensus.

This book captures best practice in construction stakeholder management using a range of international case studies. It demonstrates stakeholder mapping, presents the power/interest matrix and analyses a model for the timely engagement of stakeholders. The increased use of partnering and other relational forms of contracting have underlined the need for project participants to work together and also to be aware of all those who can affect or be affected by a project and its associated developments. Stakeholder management enables them to see this wider picture and provides guidance for managing the diverse views and interests that can manifest in the course of a project’s life. All construction projects have the potential for conflicts of interest that can result in costly and damaging legal proceedings. This new book advocates an alternative to dispute resolution that is proactive, practical and global in its application. Construction Stakeholder Management is therefore an essential text for advanced students, lecturers, researchers and practitioners in the built environment.
