Disputes can be found everywhere. We can have them privately (with our neighbors), between states (over territory or resources) or between companies and consumers, just to mention a few.

From the perspective of a lawyer, such disputes are a disagreement on legal or factual definitions. The traditional way of addressing them is through litigation: a judge will bring its verdict and solve the issue. But litigation is not always applicable, or functional. Luckily, many alternatives exist for conflict resolution that can often be equally or even more effective than traditional litigation.

During this research lunch, the lectoraat Multilevel Regulation will introduce you to the world of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). We will do so by focusing on international disputes, on subjects like tax and environment. During this session, we hope to introduce people who do not work with ADR to explore the opportunities. Perhaps we can even persuade you in applying it!

In the work of the lectoraat on the matter of ADR, students play a major role. During this research lunch they will be showcasing the valuable contribution they make to the work of the lectoraat. In promoting the use of ADR, the efforts of these students should not be underestimated!
