ARTICLES

Robert A. Baruch Bush & Joseph P. Folger, Mediation and Social Justice: Risks and Opportunities, 27 Ohio St. J. on Disp. Resol. 1 (2012).
This article examines the longstanding debate regarding whether the use of mediation poses a threat to the value of justice, at both the individual and social levels. Bush and Folger argue that although mediation may not be the best means available for advancing social justice issues, mediation can avoid contributing to social injustice provided that certain types of mediation practices are followed.

Eduardo R. C. Capulong, Mediation and the Neocolonial Legal Order: Access to Justice and Self-Determination in the Philippines, 27 Ohio St. J. on Disp. Resol. 641 (2012).
This article analyzes postcolonial community mediation using community mediation in the Philippines as an example. The author argues that access to justice and self-determination in postcolonial community mediation settings require structural reform and counter-hegemonic practices driven by a normative agenda that collectives and socializes conflict, respects and improves upon indigenous dispute resolution, and recognizes fundamental human rights.
