Interesting Uses Of Mediaiton

From Dr. John Windmueller’s blog.

I’ll be continuing my discussion of credentialing shortly, but in the meantime, here’s an interesting insertion of mediation into public-sector dispute resolution: North Carolina’s Senate is considering a bill that would include mediation as a step in disputing public records and open meeting law issues. Story here.

Also, Cricket Australia is lobbying the International Cricket Council for a mediation phase in cases of racial vilification in international cricket.

“It is consistent with our view, and the ICC’s view, that cricket should have a zero-tolerance approach to racism in sport. We need to understand what we need to do to encourage cultural acceptance, and that it’s more complicated than simply writing a list of rules. We recommended that there should be an intermediate step that recognises the complexity and the need for a more sophisticated process that takes the high drama out of it. Genuine, properly structured, well-founded mediation can have really good results. You can achieve reconciliation and move on.”
