New Interview with John Ford – The Future of Mediation and Negotiation in Our Culture, Politics and Society

John Ford Interview

Recorded by Dr. Clare Fowler on March 28, 2019

John Ford studied law at the University of Cape Town before moving to Namibia, where he practiced from 1988 to 1995. Initially, he focused on representing survivors of human-rights abuses. After Namibian independence in 1990, his focus shifted to labor and employment law.

John moved to California in 1996 and trained as a mediator. He has since successfully mediated hundreds of workplace disputes, and has worked with numerous teams to help them deal successfully with conflict.

This interview with John Ford discusses his work in the international field and how he applies those experiences to workplace and team trainings.
