Alternative Dispute Resolution Centre (Mediation and Negotiation)

The Alternative Dispute Resolution Centre is an initiative by the University to promote academic research on themes pertaining to the resolution of disputes. Alternative Dispute Resolution is a new and emerging inter-disciplinary field that is concerned with, inter-alia, the following themes: (a) the study of the causative structural factors and the subjective motives of the actors giving rise to disputes; (b) the study of the formal and informal institutions dedicated to the resolution of disputes; and (c) the study of the laws and regulations to produce fair outcomes of disputes. The Centre is particularly oriented towards the study the dispute resolution systems existing both nationally and internationally. The Centre looks forward to extensive collaborations with institutions, both professional and academic, engaged in this new field.
