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.

Arbitration in China

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

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

Wer Konflikte und schwierige Situationen anpackt und mit der Macht des Dialogs löst, schafft es, das eigene Potenzial und das der Mitarbeiter auszuschöpfen. So kann vermieden werden, dass das Unternehmen, das Team oder die eigene Person an den schwelenden Konflikten zerbricht oder durch die - meist nur in den Köpfen existierende - Ausweglosigkeit dauerhaft gelähmt wird. George Kohlrieser, der sein enormes Wissen nicht nur aus seiner Arbeit als klinischer und als Organisationspsychologe, sondern auch aus seinen Erfolgen als Verhandlungsführer bei Geiselnahmen schöpft, vermittelt dem Leser Schritt für Schritt, wie man selbst immer Herr der Lage bleibt. Anhand von realen Geiselsituationen beschreibt der Autor die Schlüsselfaktoren, die den Leser befähigen, mentale Blockaden zu beseitigen, die uns alle immer wieder zu Gefangenen werden lassen. Führungskräfte erfahren, was sie tun müssen, um eine vertrauensvolle Zusammenarbeit und eine positive, engagierte Einstellung im Team zu erreichen: - Sprechen Sie die Situation klar an. - Bauen Sie echte Beziehungen auf - auch zum "Feind". - Denken Sie niemals wie eine Geisel. - Nutzen Sie die Macht von Dialog und Verhandlung. - Seien Sie selbst eine verlässliche Basis und bilden Sie so Vertrauen. - Verstehen Sie, dass eine Person niemals das Problem ist. - Richten Sie Ihr geistiges Auge auf Erfolg.

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."
