In this thought-provoking, passionately written book, Bernard Mayer—an internationally acclaimed leader in the field—dares practitioners to ask the hard questions about alternative dispute resolution.

Offering a committed practitioner’s critique of the profession of mediation, arbitration, and alternative dispute resolution, Beyond Neutrality focuses on the current crisis in the field of conflict resolution and offers a pragmatic response.

Der aus den USA stammende und dort bereits seit Jahren erfolgreich in der Praxis eingesetzte transformative Ansatz in der Mediation ist im deutschen Sprachraum noch weitgehend unbekannt. Robert A.

Re-centering Culture and Knowledge in Conflict Resolution Practice

At its core, the field of conflict resolution is about relationships and ways of approaching methods for problem solving. These relationships and approaches vary greatly depending on the individual, society, and historical background. Cultural perspective is thus fundamental to any dispute intervention. Re-Centering Culture and Knowledge in Conflict Resolution Practice is a collection of essays by scholars and practitioners of conflict resolution and grassroots members of communities whose contributions are not commonly recognized. The volume offers a sampling of the cultural voices essential to effective practice yet often considered marginal in the discourse of conflict resolution. The authors explore the role of culture, race, and oppression in resolving disputes. Drawing on firsthand experience and sound research, the authors address such issues as culturally sensitive mediation practices, the diversity of perspectives in conflict resolution literature, and power dynamics. The first anthology of its kind, this book combines personal narratives with formal scholarship. By melding these varied approaches, the authors seek to inspire activism for social justice in today's multicultural society.

The Dynamics of Conflict

A Guide to Engagement and Intervention

The Dynamics of Conflict When it was published in 2000, Bernie Mayer's The Dynamics of Conflict Resolution quickly became one of the seminal works in the conflict resolution field. The book bridged the gap between abstract theoretical approaches and practical handbooks and became an immensely valuable and accessible resource for experienced and novice practitioners, as well as for professors and students of conflict management who needed a deep yet practical view of conflict and methods for dealing with it. The Dynamics of Conflict is the second edition of Mayer's classic book. While building on the strengths of the first edition, this thoroughly revised and updated book keeps pace with the most current trends and research in the field and explores four key concepts: interactional dynamics, system dynamics, culture and conflict, and conflict engagement. Like the first edition, the focus of the new edition is on the ways we can productively think about conflict and conflict intervention, rather than on specific techniques and processes. Mayer presents ideas about conflict as a set of conceptual tools that build on one another and contribute to a multifaceted view of conflict and conflict intervention but that also stand on their own. Filled with illustrative examples, the book draws from the author's thirty years of experience with interpersonal, family, community, organizational, labor management, environmental, public policy, and international disputes and includes instances of conflicts that have been in the news. In addition, this vital resource contains information on the most important work that has been done in the past decade on culture, systems, and conflict engagement and shows how conflict concepts apply to new technologies such as online communication and conflict resolution efforts on the Web. In the concluding chapter Mayer explores how conflict intervention efforts fit into more general values about peace, democracy, and social justice, and the personal impact that conflict work as a field has on conflict specialists.

A Strategic Approach to Ongoing Disputes

Winner of the 2009 CPR Award for Outstanding Book In this groundbreaking book, Bernard Mayer, a pioneer in the field of conflict resolution, offers a new paradigm for dealing with long-term disputes. Mayer explains that when dealing with enduring conflict, mediators and other conflict resolution specialists need to move past the idea of how quickly they can resolve the conflict. Instead, they should focus on how they can help people prepare to engage with an issue over time. Once their attention is directed away from a speedy resolution to a long-term approach, new avenues of intervention become apparent.

This volume is an essential, cutting-edge reference for all practitioners, students, and teachers in the field of dispute resolution. Each chapter was written specifically for this collection and has never before been published. The book's contributors draw from a wide range of academic disciplines and represent many of the most prominent names in dispute resolution today, including Frank E. A. Sander, Carrie Menkel-Meadow, Bruce Patton, Lawrence Susskind, Ethan Katsh, Deborah Kolb, and Max Bazerman. The Handbook of Dispute Resolution contains the most current thinking about dispute resolution. It synthesizes more than thirty years of research into cogent, practitioner-focused chapters that assume no previous background in the field. At the same time, the book offers path-breaking research and theory that will interest those who have been immersed in the study or practice of dispute resolution for years. The Handbook also offers insights on how to understand disputants. It explores how personality factors, emotions, concerns about identity, relationship dynamics, and perceptions contribute to the escalation of disputes. The volume also explains some of the lessons available from viewing disputes through the lens of gender and cultural differences. The book looks closely at the structure of disputes and dispute contexts, offers advice for creating value in disputes, using agents, and explores settlement through tools such as decision analysis. The information on law, ethics, and organizational dynamics offers particular insights into the ways that disputes are shaped by factors beyond the parties themselves. The book also contains a comprehensive review of a wide range of available dispute resolution processes. Chapters on negotiation, mediation, arbitration, litigation, and consensus building serve as perfect introductions to the field and as useful syntheses for experienced practitioners. Finally, the book explores the topics that are likely to be at the center of dispute resolution in the coming decades. Disputes now commonly arise or are resolved online, in transboundary settings, or in other nontraditional contexts. The Handbook concludes with a glimpse of the future: What will dispute resolution look like over the next thirty years? Published as part of a special series with the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, The Handbook of Dispute Resolution offers the most complete and authoritative synthesis of the field available.

Conflict Resolution and the Scholarship of Engagement

As the field of conflict analysis and resolution continues to grow, scholars and practitioners increasingly recognize that we can learn from one another. Theory must be informed by practice and practice must draw on sound theory. Above and beyond this lies a further recognition: without at least attempting to actually engage and transform entrenched conflicts, our field cannot hope to achieve its potential. We will merely remain in a more diverse, multi-disciplinary ivory tower. This edition breaks new ground in explicitly connecting the Scholarship of Engagement to the work of conflict resolution professionals including those in the academy, those in the field, and those who refuse to choose between the two. The text explores a wide variety of examples of, and thinking on, the Scholarship of Engagement from participatory action research to peace education, and from genocide prevention to community mediation and transitional justice.

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.
