Tercer artículo colectivo producto del debate en el foro Cyberweek 2014 sobre Sistemas Normativos y ODR

(12/26/14)Alberto Elisavetsky

En casos de ODR respecto de situaciones transfronterizas, sólo tenemos las normas de Derecho Internacional Privado. Es bueno destacar que el Grupo III de la CNUDMI (Comisión de las Naciones Unidas para el Derecho Mercantil Internacional -o UNCITRAL en Inglés), está reuniéndose desde hace bastante tiempo (celebraron su 30° período de sesiones entre el 20 y el 24 de octubre pasado en Viena), a fin de elaborar un proyecto de reglamento para la solución de controversias en línea en operaciones transfronterizas de comercio electrónico.

A Future of Social Technology In Support of Peace & Justice

(12/08/14)Colin Rule

I envision a world where our social technology is designed in a way that builds human empathy, identifies and resolves conflict early and effectively, and introduces an era of greater peace, justice, and happiness. It will take a lot of work to get there, and there will be a lot of bumps in the road, but I can see it plain as day. That’s my hope for the future of mediation.

Adding Verbal and Non-Verbal Communications Capacity in Virtual Contexts

(8/11/14)Ben Ziegler

Working virtually can put the squeeze on our full range of verbal and nonverbal communication skills. This is a given with it comes to nonverbal. When we’re in the same physical space together, the success of our communication effort is mightily influenced by our nonverbal, visual, actions. Where is body language, and tone of voice, in a tweet or Facebook post? Fortunately, there are virtual ways to add back some of our lost communications capacity, both verbal and nonverbal.

Multi-tasking

(6/30/14)Joe Markowitz

Some interesting back-and-forth occurred during the last panel of the day yesterday at the 2014 ODR conference, when David Bilinsky, a legal practice consultant, described the high tech tools he uses in teaching law students. To oversimplify his presentation, these tools allow students to conduct side discussions during lectures in a chat feature that can be employed either during an online or even an in-person class. The theory is that these side chats can expand on the lecture, and reinforce learning by facilitating more interactive participation.

Online Dispute Resolution: An Amorphous Concept, Yet An Effective Tool

(4/25/14)Renee Kolar

While ODR has its roots in North America,[1] the process is taking off internationally. Scholars have written articles on the expansion of ODR in Europe, Australia, Asia, Latin America, and Africa.[2] A big draw for ODR is its ability to solve disputes despite vast geographical distances, making it a prime candidate for the resolution of international disputes. Much of the focus devoted to ODR by providers has been on international case management (e.g. AAA, CPR).

Video-based mediation – it’s starting to happen. What do we need to know?

(4/16/14)Noam Ebner

I recently had the pleasure of writing a paper with my student-turned-teacher, Jeff Thompson (an alumnus of our Negotiation and Dispute Resolution program at Creighton and the Wizard Behind the Curtain at ADRHub). Jeff works on non-verbal communication in mediation, and is also in involved in ODR. Putting those together with my own interest in the role of trust in ODR, we mapped out some issues at the juxtaposition of trust, non-verbal communication and online, video-based, mediation. You can read this article, soon to appear in the International Journal of Online Dispute Resolution, here.

Yes, It Can Be Done: Ten Mediation Program Models, One Online System

(3/30/14)Jennifer Shack

When Resolution Systems Institute received a grant from the Illinois Attorney General to develop foreclosure mediation programs across the state, it was our opportunity to practice what we preach. From RSI’s inception, we’ve been telling courts that they need to monitor and evaluate their mediation programs to ensure that they’re providing quality services to those who come to them to resolve disputes. We’ve also been urging them to incorporate the development of a monitoring and evaluation system into their program design process.

Family Violence and ODR

(12/23/13)Maria Eugenia Sole

While conflict is inevitable and inherent to the family, violence is an inadequate manifestation of tensions and conflicts that goes beyond the capacity of response of individuals, due to serious situations of psycho-emotional, sociocultural or economic limitations. In this sense, violence is the extreme manifestation of the constraints to which families are subjected.
