This course will examine methods of dispute resolution used in other countries and compare them to those employed in the United States. We will explore how differences in culture, religion, history, and legal institutions affect the way people resolve conflicts with readings, video, and simulation exercises. Readings will include materials on cultural differences in conflict resolution and case studies on practices and developments in other countries and regions. By studying other approaches to dispute resolution, students will discover a fresh perspective on its practice and role in the United States and on the challenges of cross-border applications of dispute resolution.
