Sidebar Rogers wins international ADR award
The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) recognized Professor Nancy H. Rogers with the Outstanding Professional Article award for her article When Conflicts Polarize Communities: Designing Localized Offices that Intervene Collaboratively, 30 Ohio St. J. on Disp. Res. 173 (2015). In the timely piece, Rogers looks at communities in crisis, often started by a shocking and tragic incident that leads to demonstrations and unrest, and proposes the use of local intervenors to prevent escalation and to help communities deliberate about ways to solve, or at least ameliorate, the problems underlying their differences.
CPR is a global nonprofit organization that advances dispute resolution practices and provides high quality dispute resolution solutions. Rogers received the award at the organization’s annual meeting. She is currently Michael E. Moritz Emeritus Chair in Alternative Dispute Resolution and teaches Dispute System Design Workshop.
