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.
