Abstract

Extract:

In this article I discuss the power of the idea that ADR is an alternative, and its parallel ideas; that ADR has been compromised by its close alliance with legal structures. I suggest that this approach underestimates the achievements of ADR inside and outside legal institutions and that it is a hangover of a dominant mediation paradigm. More fundamentally, it reflects a misunderstanding of the nature of cooperation. Indicators of a new distinctive ADR are proposed.
