LB5514 - Cross-Cultural Conflict Resolution
|Student Contribution Band:
||School of Law Office (pre 2015)
This subject examines mediation/negotiation theory and practice in cross-cultural
contexts. It focuses on the application of mediation in those contexts. Mediation
is often considered to be a conflict resolution process created within a Western cultural
system. However, other cultures have similar processes of third party intervention
in conflicts. This subject seeks to identify the limits of the Western model in cross-cultural
conflict and negotiation. It also examines how these limitations might be addressed
in the mediation design phase and the implications for the implementation of dispute
resolution systems. The subject has a particular focus on mediation and negotiation
involving Indigenous peoples. Students use case studies to examine mediation design
in particular cross-cultural circumstances.
