This book highlights the tremendous shift in the traditional arrangements for the delivery of civil justice in the Commonwealth Caribbean, from litigation to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. Over the last quarter of a century, much learning has taken place on the topic of ADR and the literature on the subject is now voluminous. This book puts forward the thesis that the peculiar experiences of the developing world ought to help reshape our traditional notions of ADR. Furthermore, the impact of globalisation on the developing world has brought with it special and peculiar challenges to our notions of civil and criminal justice which are not replicated elsewhere. This book will appeal to a wide readership. The legal profession, students of law and politics, social scientists, mediators, the police, state officers and the public at large will find its contents of interest.

For some years there has been growing dissatisfaction with litigation and arbitration as a means of settling construction disputes, and increasingly parties have been turning to adjudication and alternative dispute resolution (ADR). This trend was given a major impetus by the introduction of the 1996 Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act and the Scheme for Construction Contracts, which resulted in statutory adjudication being introduced in most of the main building and engineering standard forms. This book surveys the growth of ADR and looks in detail at the various methods: * adjudication and expert determination * mediation and conciliation * dispute review boards and disputes advisers * other forms, such as mini-trial and mediation-arbitration It discusses the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act and the Scheme for Construction Contracts, and their effect on adjudication and construction contracts considering both procedural and legal issues. It looks in detail at the adjudication clauses of all the main building and engineering contracts.

Within the past few years, innovative methods have been developed not only to settle disputes out of court but also to supplement or replace the means by which legislatures, businesses, communities, therapists, and schools handle conflicts that once could be resolved only by litigation or force. Settling Disputes serves as an essential guide to the new settlement alternatives. This updated edition, in response to the rapid changes of the past five years, includes substantial new material that describes recent transformations in the way that courts and public agencies respond to disputes. The book discusses alternative dispute resolution from the viewpoints of potential participants and offers advice to those who are involved in disputes to help them analyze their situations and goals. Finally, it provides suggestions for professionals involved in dispute resolution and for those whose jobs in law, business, or government are affected by the new options for settling disputes.The dispute resolution movement continues to offer the most hopeful, powerful alternative to the business and personal costs of litigation or, worse, of violence. It has tremendous implications for the professional lives of Americans, for their private lives?as parents, spouses, neighbors, and consumers?and for their role as citizens.The first edition of Settling Disputes was awarded the 1990 Center for Public Resources Book Prize.
