The Model Standards of Conduct for Mediators was prepared in 1994 by the American Arbitration Association, the American Bar Association Section of Dispute Resolution, and the Association for Conflict Resolution. A joint committee consisting of representatives from the same successor organizations revised the Model Standards in 2005. The Reporter for the 2005 effort was Professor Joseph Stulberg. The 2005 revision, including the Reporter’s Notes, can be found at the link above.

The Bridge Initiative compiles a bibliography as a resource for innovative dispute systems designers and scholars who look for ways to help people bridge differences, particularly when they are divided in ways that they feel deeply. The books, articles and websites listed in this site are not limited to resolution of identity-based conflict. The bibliography also includes writings about dispute resolution in nations other than the United States or within cultural communities in the United States that may offer insights to the dispute systems designers looking for new ideas and a broader understanding of cultural and political influences on dispute resolution. For more information on the Bridge Initiative, contact Professor Nancy Rogers.
