From all sides: a global perspective on ADR, thanks to International Dispute Negotiation podcast

One of the best aspects of the digital age is the ability to connect to ideas and news whose source lies far from our own front steps. These ideas from across the globe are not only stimulating for their novelty; they also affirm, since they highlight our commonalities, not just our differences.

Since I was introduced to it last November, one of my favorite sources for information and fresh thinking with a global perspective is the International Dispute Negotiation podcast.

International Dispute Negotiation, presented by the International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution (CPR), explores ways people across a wide range of countries, backgrounds, and professions approach the resolution of disputes. International Dispute Negotiation is hosted by Michael McIlwrath, Senior Counsel, Litigation for GE Infrastructure – Oil & Gas, based at his company’s headquarters in Florence, Italy.

Now available is Michael’s most recent interview: Mediating from Singapore: An Interview with Christopher Lau.
