Addressing ethical issues in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes in no easy feat. What can an ADR practitioner do to support party self-determination when there is concern about a party's capacity; what is a practitioner's responsibility for substantive justice; does a practitioner's competence impact on the justice outcome. How an ADR practitioner responds to ethical concerns will influence the quality of justice, both procedural and substantive. The articles in this Special Issue, drawn from those presented at an ADR Ethics symposium for ADR practitioners in 2015, provide insights into aspects of justice, quality and practice issues in diverse ADR settings including mediation, family dispute resolution, restorative justice and statutory dispute resolution. Collectively the articles advance our understanding of the complex issue of ADR ethics. Ethics in Alternative Dispute Resolutionis a special issue (Volume 35 No 1) of the journal Law in Context.

Alternative Dispute Resolution of Shareholder Disputes in Hong Kong

The landscape of shareholder dispute resolution in Hong Kong has changed vastly since the launch of the Civil Justice Reform in 2009. Key initiatives - the voluntary court-connected scheme and reform of the statutory unfair prejudice provisions - were employed to promote the greater use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in shareholder disputes. While the Hong Kong government and judiciary introduced such schemes to prove the legitimacy of extra-judicial over court-based litigation processes, their success is still uncertain. In this book, socio-legal theory and sociological institutionalism are used to develop a theoretical framework for analyzing the key stages of institutionalization. The author analyzes how procedural innovations could acquire legitimacy through different types of legal and non-legal inducement mechanisms within the institutionalization process. Recommendations on codifying and innovating ADR policy in Hong Kong shareholder disputes made with comparison to similar policies in the United Kingdom, South Africa and New Zealand.

Islam, Sharia and Alternative Dispute Resolution

Mechanisms for Legal Redress in the Muslim Community

The meanings and contexts of Shari'a are the subject of both curiosity and misunderstanding by non-Muslims. Shari'a is sometimes crudely characterised by outsiders as a punitive legal system operating broadly outside, and separate from, national laws and customs. This groundbreaking book shows that Shari'a and its 'fiqh' (laws set forward by various Islamic legal schools) comprise a far more nuanced matrix of interpretations than is often assumed to be the case. Far from being monolithic or impervious to change from without, Muslim legal tradition has - since its beginnings in the early Islamic period - placed an emphasis on equity and non-adversarial conflict-resolution. Mohamed Keshavjee examines both Sunni and Shi'a applications of Islamic law, demonstrating how political, cultural and other factors have influenced the practice of fiqh and Shari'a in the West. Exploring in particular the modern development of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), the author shows that this process can revitalise some of the essential principles that underlie Muslim teachings and jurispudence, delivering not only formal remedies but also perceived justice, even to non-Muslims.

Quality of Decision-making in Public Law

Studies in Administrative Decision-making in the Netherlands

Administrative decisions of government agencies are a fact of present day life and the general public is confronted with them all the time. Therefore, the legal quality of administrative decisions matter to people. It is in the interest of the individual person and the general public that agencies produce legally proper decisions right away. Correctional court procedures are cumbersome and costly, both to the individual objector and to the tax payer. Moreover, public agencies with a reputation of doing things right the first time will generate public trust in government and reinforce the legitimacy of public decision-making. The main theme of this collection of essays is to do things right the first time. The collection draws on the combined research experience of a group of Dutch scholars in public law and public administration. Thus, the topic is examined from a variety of angles and perspectives. Some of the papers deal with basic questions such as: What could be the meaning of the concept of legal quality? How can it be applied when assessing administrative decision-making? Other essays examine conditions for enhancing legal quality, both in public law and in public organizations. Also included are some topical studies that present specific issues in the legal quality of administrative decision-making.

Praise for The Handbook of Conflict Resolution "This handbook is a classic. It helps connect the research of academia to the practical realities of peacemaking and peacebuilding like no other. It is both comprehensive and deeply informed on topics vital to the field like power, gender, cooperation, emotion, and trust. It now sits prominently on my bookshelf." —Leymah Gbowee, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate "The Handbook of Conflict Resolution offers an astonishing array of insightful articles on theory and practice by leading scholars and practitioners. Students, professors, and professionals alike can learn a great deal from studying this Handbook." —William Ury, Director, Global Negotiation Project, Harvard University; coauthor, Getting to Yes and author, The Third Side "Morton Deutsch, Peter Coleman, and Eric Marcus put together a handbook that will be helpful to many. I hope the book will reach well beyond North America to contribute to the growing worldwide interest in the constructive resolution of conflict. This book offers instructive ways to make this commitment a reality." —George J. Mitchell, Former majority leader of the United States Senate; former chairman of the Peace Negotiations in Northern Ireland and the International Fact-Finding Committee on Violence in the Middle East; chairman of the board, Walt Disney Company; senior fellow at the School of International and Public Affairs, Columbia University "Let's be honest. This book is just too big to carry around in your hand. But that's because it is loaded with the most critical essays linking the theory and practice of conflict resolution. The Handbook of Conflict Resolution is heavy on content and should be a well-referenced resource on the desk of every mediator—as it is on mine." —Johnston Barkat, Assistant Secretary-General, Ombudsman and Mediation Services, United Nations
