Symposium Webcast - Listening to the World: New Ideas for Resolving Identity-Based Conflict

image On January 26, 2006 The Ohio State University Moritz College of Law hosted an all-day Symposium entitled Listening to the World: New Ideas for Resolving Identity-Based Conflict. The event was video-taped and is available for viewing as a webcast. The first portion of the symposium provides an overview of the techniques, goals, and social effects of comparative dispute system design and a sketch of police-community relations in the United States. During the second portion, an interdisciplinary panel discusses how conflict resolution mechanisms might address conflict that arises in the context of domestic police community relations. In the third portion, scholars from South Africa, Israel, and Northern Ireland share insights and innovations based on experiences in their home countries. The symposium concludes with Dean Nancy Hardin Rogers moderating a discussion between dispute resolution experts and the domestic and international community panelists. All the symposium papers will be published in Volume 22, Issue 1, of the Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution, scheduled for publication in the fall of 2006.
