The award-winning first edition of The Promise of Mediation,published ten years ago, is a landmark classic that changed thefield's understanding of the theory and practice of conflictintervention. That volume first articulated the "transformativemodel" of mediation, which greatly humanized the vision of how themediation process could help parties in conflict. In the pastdecade, the transformative model has proved itself and gainedincreasing acceptance. It is now being used in such diverse arenasas workplace, community, family, organizational, and public policyconflicts, among others. In this new edition, the authors draw on a decade of work intheory development, training, practice, research, and assessment topresent a thoroughly revised and updated account of thetransformative model of mediation and its practical application,including a compelling description of how the field has moved towardincreasing acceptance of the transformative model a new and clearer presentation of the theory and practices oftransformative mediation, with many concrete examples a new case study that provides a vivid picture of the model inpractice, with a commentary full of new information about how touse it effectively clarifications of common misconceptions about the model a vision for the future that shows how the model can coexistwith other approaches and where the "market" for transformativemediation is emerging This volume is a foundational resource on transformative practice,for both readers of the first edition and new readers - includingmediators, facilitators, lawyers, administrators, human resourceprofessionals, policymakers, and conflict resolution researchersand educators. More generally, this book will strike a chord withanyone interested in humanizing our social institutions andbuilding on a relational vision of society.

Mediation hat sich als strukturiertes freiwilliges Verfahren zur konstruktiven Beilegung oder zur Vermeidung von Konflikten mittlerweile allgemein durchgesetzt. Der aus den USA stammende und dort bereits seit Jahren erfolgreich in der Praxis eingesetzte transformative Ansatz in der Mediation ist im deutschen Sprachraum noch weitgehend unbekannt. Robert A. Baruch Bush und Joseph P. Folger sind die die Begründer des Ansatzes und schildern in ihrem Buch das Modell und den Einsatz in der Praxis.

New ways of managing conflict are increasingly important features of work and employment in organizations. In the book the world's leading scholars in the field examine a range of innovative alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practices, drawing on international research and scholarship and covering both case studies of major exemplars and developments in countries in different parts of the global economy. Developments in the management of individual and collective conflict at work are addressed, as are innovations in both unionized and non-union organizations and in the private and public sectors. New practices for managing conflict in organizations are set in the context of trends in workplace conflict and perspectives on how conflict should be understood and addressed. Part 1 examines the changing context of conflict management by addressing the main frameworks for understanding conflict management, the trend in conflict at work, developments in employment rights, and the influence of HRM on conflict management. Part 2 covers the main approaches to conflict management in organizations, addressing both conventional and alternative approaches to conflict resolution. Conventional grievance handling and third-party processes in conflict resolution are examined as well as the main ADR practices, including conflict management in non-union firms, the role of the organizational ombudsman, mediation, interest-based bargaining, line and supervisory management, and the concept of conflict management systems. Part 3 presents case studies of exemplars and innovators in the field, covering mediation in the US postal service, interest-based bargaining at Kaiser-Permanente, 'med-arb' in the New Zealand Police, and judicial mediation in UK employment tribunals. Part 4 covers international developments in conflict management in Germany, Japan, The United States, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and China. This Handbook gives a comprehensive overview of this growing field, which has seen an huge increase in programmes of study in university business and law schools and in executive education programmes.

Another Way of Seeing

Essays on Transforming Law, Politics and Culture

In ANOTHER WAY OF SEEING, Peter Gabel argues that our most fundamental spiritual need as human beings is the desire for authentic mutual recognition. Because we live in a world in which this desire is systematically denied due to the legacy of fear of the other that has been passed on from generation to generation, we exist as what he calls "withdrawn selves," perceiving the other as a threat rather than as the source of our completion as social beings. Calling for a new kind of "spiritual activism" that speaks to this universal interpersonal longing, Gabel shows how we can transform law, politics, public policy, and culture so as to build a new social movement through which we become more fully present to each other--creating a new "parallel universe" existing alongside our socially separated world and reaffirming the social bond that inherently unites us. "Peter Gabel is one of the grand prophetic voices in our day. He also is a long-distance runner in the struggle for justice. Don't miss this book!" --Cornel West, The Class of 1943 Professor, Princeton University, and Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice, Union Theological Seminary "Replete with wise insights that reward readers with Another Way of Seeing toward their pursuit of compassion, community, and a better world, law professor, activist and philosopher Peter Gabel's excellent essay collection elaborates upon the meaning of Martin Luther King Jr.'s expression 'Justice is love correcting that which revolts against love.' No matter what your expertise, Gabel's thoughts are pertinent to fulfillment of your human possibilities." --Ralph Nader, Washington, DC

In the context of harmonisation of arbitration law and practice worldwide, to what extent do local legal traditions still influence local arbitration practices, especially at a time when non-Western countries are playing an increasingly important role in international commercial and financial markets? How are the new economic powers reacting to the trend towards harmonisation? China provides a good case study, with its historic tradition of non-confrontational means of dispute resolution now confronting current trends in transnational arbitration. Is China showing signs of adapting to the current trend of transnational arbitration? On the other hand, will Chinese legal culture influence the practice of arbitration in the rest of the world? To address these challenging questions it is necessary to examine the development of arbitration in the context of China's changing cultural and legal structures. Written for international business people, lawyers, academics and students, this book gives the reader a unique insight into arbitration practice in China, based on a combination of theoretical analysis and practical insights. It explains contemporary arbitration in China from an interdisciplinary perspective and with a comparative approach, setting Chinese arbitration in its wider social context to aid understanding of its history, contemporary practice, the legal obstacles to modern arbitration and possible future trends. In 2011 the thesis on which this book was based was named 'Best Thesis in International Studies' by the Swiss Network for International Studies. "What distinguishes this work from other books on international arbitration is its interdisciplinary perspective and comparative approach...this book makes a remarkable contribution to the understanding of arbitration in China and transnational arbitration in general. Academics, scholars and students of international arbitration, comparative studies and globalisation may all find this book stimulating. It also provides useful guidance for practitioners involved or interested in arbitration in China.†? From the Foreword by Gabrielle Kaufmann-Kohler

Interkulturelle Mediation

eine theoretische Grundlegung triadischer Konfliktbearbeitung in interkulturell bedingten Kontexten

Diese Arbeit wurde mit dem Mediations-Wissenschaftspreis 2004 der Centrale fur Mediation ausgezeichnet. Westliche Gesellschaften haben -interkulturelle Mediation- zu einem Trendbegriff stilisiert, der Losungen fur einen kompetenten Umgang mit Interkulturalitat verspricht. Eine diskursanalytische Perspektive auf die Forschung zu interkultureller Kommunikation und Konfliktmediation deckt implizite Ziel- und Fragestellungen beider Bereiche auf. Wahrend deduktive Konzepte interkultureller Mediation, die auf einer Ubertragung von Mediation auf den Problembereich interkultureller Kommunikation beruhen, Besonderheiten interkulturell bedingter Interaktion kaum erfassen konnen, wird erganzend eine induktive Konzeption vorgeschlagen: Gesucht wird nach Formen triadischer Verstandigungsforderung, unter denen beispielsweise Strategien einer -spontanen Laien-Mediation- erfolgsversprechend erscheinen."

Erfolgreich verhandeln mit Gefühl und Verstand

Verhandeln? Bitte mit Gefühl! Noch immer herrscht der weitverbreitete Irrglaube, Verhandlungen müssten möglichst rational geführt, Emotionen weitestgehend ausgeklammert werden. Roger Fisher (Mitautor des Bestsellers "Das Harvard-Konzept") und Daniel Shapiro (Autor von "Verhandeln. Die neue Erfolgsmethode aus Harvard") zeigen, dass diese Herangehensweise nicht nur impraktikabel, sondern auch wenig Erfolg versprechend ist. Denn der Mensch ist ein emotionales Wesen und egal ob Freude, Wut oder Angst: Gefühle sind fester Bestandteil unseres Denkens und Handelns, die auch in sachlichen Verhandlungen nicht abgeschaltet werden können. Fisher und Shapiro zeigen, dass sich Emotionen sogar positiv auf das Verhandlungsergebnis auswirken: Wer die Bedeutung und Anzeichen der wichtigsten emotionalen Grundbedürfnisse erkennt, kann sie gezielt aktivieren und ansprechen und dadurch den Verhandlungsverlauf positiv beeinflussen.
