Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative dispute resolution is no longer relegated to the back of the (international) dispute settlement, but plays an increasingly active and important role – with all its advantages and drawbacks. It is therefore important, that legal practitioners and scholars alike are aware of and discuss this phenomenon. The upcoming symposium on ADR intends to be a starting point.

As a way of introduction, the first contribution places ADR in its historical context and explains in detail what it means today. Then, we explore ADR from different angles in three areas: a discussion on the pros and cons of investment arbitration, followed by peace mediation and the importance of norms in this process, ending with a practical insight on mediating environmental disputes.
