World Directory of ADR Blogs celebrates its first anniversary

Today marks the first anniversary of the World Directory of Alternative Dispute Resolution Blogs, a directory that tracks and catalogues ADR blogs world-wide. It grew out of a project that I began during my first year of blogging in 2005, when I conducted my first census of ADR blogs and learned that there were only a few of us blogging about mediation, negotiation, or conflict resolution.

Today the World Directory lists 104 blogs from 17 different countries.

I continue to look for ways to add to my inventory. If you publish or know of a blog that should be added, please let me know. It’s a commercial-free site, and there is no cost to be listed.

I am especially interested in leads on ADR blogs outside the U.S. and Canada. If you know of any, I hope you’ll get in touch. The Directory has information on submitting your blog and submission guidelines.

Many thanks to the bloggers who got in touch with me from all over the world to tell me about their blogs and their work in the legal or ADR fields. And my gratitude to the friends who have supported this project, whose names are listed at the World Directory’s web site.
