This volume presents some of the findings from a project on various aspects
of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), including conciliation, mediation,
and arbitration. To study the discursive practices of ADR today, an
international initiative has been undertaken by a group of specialists in
discourse analysis, law, and arbitration from more than twenty countries.
The chapters in this volume draw on discourse-based data (narrative,
documentary and interactional) to investigate the extent to which the
'integrity' of ADR principles is maintained in practice, and to what extent
there is an increasing level of influence from litigative processes and
procedures. The primary evidence for such practices comes from textual and
discourse-based studies, ethnographic observations, and narratives of
experience on the part of experts in the field, as well as on the part of
some of the major corporate stakeholders drawn from commercial sectors.
