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.
