Adam B. Kinon, Power Before Interests in Dispute System Design, 17 Harv. Negot. L. Rev. 273 (2012).
This article demonstrates why a designer must begin the Dispute System Design process with an analysis of power and how that power dynamic may be shaped to allow the implementation of an interests-based approach.  This article does not challenge the premise that the best dispute systems ultimately concentrate on interests; rather it argues that a designer working for an organization must first understand the unique internal balance of power of the organization before thinking about interests.

Arthur Pearlstein, Pursuit of Happiness and Resolution of Conflict: An Agenda for the Future of ADR, 12 Pepp. Disp. Resol. L.J. 215 (2012).
It is critical in conflict resolution studies and practice to utilize the vast amounts of data and research that have been gathered in the study of happiness. Approaches in positive psychology, with the heavy use of scientific method and expensive equipment, have been enabled by vast resources that have been brought to bear. The field of conflict resolution suffers from a lack of resources at this level, but overlapping agendas should allow borrowing of resources.

BOOKS

Sarah Kember & Joanna Zylinska, Life After New Media: Mediation as a Vital Process(2012)
The authors argue that mediation is key for understanding our being in a technological world. People should move beyond their fascination with technological devices to examination the interlocking technical, social, and biological process of mediation. The explain that using mediation as a lens reveals that life itself can be understood as being mediated and subject to the same process of reproduction, transformation, flattening, and patenting undergone by other media forms.
