“Culture and the Dispute Resolution Process”
Sponsor
CISCDR Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence Lecture presented by CISCDR (Center for the Interdisciplinary Study of Conflict and Dispute Resolution)
SEP 24, 2008
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM
Location
Moot Courtroom
Does culture play a role in the lawyering process? on dispute resolution methods? What exactly is culture? This lecture will address these important questions. Some commentators and practitioners assert that culture is of little or no consequence in dispute resolution, and that it need not be studied. Professor Lee will address, and largely question, such a view. He urges that culture may be a factor in many disputes, quite significant in some situations, and less so in others. Culture is perhaps most pronounced in the international setting, but is also present in the domestic setting. In all events, the failure to recognize cultural norms and differences may lead to missed opportunities in settlement, or an exacerbation of the dispute. Ultimately, participants in the dispute resolution arena – whether parties, counsel, or neutrals – must be aware of the presence and impact of culture, toward facilitating fair settlement.
