Global Issues in Mediation, co-authored by ArbitralWomen Member Professor of Law Jacqueline Nolan-Haley at Fordham Law School together with Professor of Law Ellen E. Deason at The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law and Professor of Law Mariana Hernandez-Crespo Gonstead at St. Thomas School of Law and published by West Academic Publishing, provides a comprehensive overview of key topics about resolving disputes in our global landscape.
Mediation is increasingly viewed as an attractive dispute resolution option. The book covers the latest developments in mediation, cultural considerations, legal issues and regulation, ethical challenges, innovative trends and peacemaking mediation.
“Through its rich compilation of scholarship, Global Issues in Mediation educates the reader about the global perspectives underpinning mediation theories, ethics and practice,” commented Professor of Law Elayne E. Greenberg, Assistant Dean for Dispute Resolution Programs, St. John’s University School of Law.
“As mediation becomes a dispute resolution process of choice around the globe—helping to resolve all kinds of private and public conflicts—this new book is an indispensable introduction and review of the key issues in mediation’s uses—ethics, regulation, different models of practice, cultural differences, voluntary, contractual choices and mandatory court assignments. The case studies provided in Global Issues in Mediation vividly illustrate what happens when we choose to facilitate international and intercultural negotiations in so many different parts of the world. It is a rewarding addition to the Global Issues in Law series,” commented Professor of Law Carrie Menkel-Meadow, University of California Irvine Law School.
