O presente trabalho aborda a inserção dos meios alternativos de resolução de conflitos no processo civil e propõe a consideração de tais métodos como técnicas processuais voltadas ao atingimento dos escopos da jurisdição, tomada essencialmente como função pública voltada à pacificação de conflitos. São apresentados os institutos fundamentais do processo civil e se parte de uma releitura do processo civil a partir da busca da efetividade e da consideração do escopo da pacificação como escopo magno da jurisdição, o que justifica a introdução de meios complementares de solução de conflitos voltados à promoção da solução consensual dos litígios. Tem-se, então, em certa medida, a ampliação do objeto de estudo do processo civil. Tendo em vista a necessidade de se agregar novos institutos à consecução dos escopos do processo, os meios alternativos de solução de conflitos passam a ser tratados não mais como meros equivalentes jurisdicionais, mas como ferramentas do próprio sistema processual para a consecução de seus escopos. Isso conduz ao alargamento do objeto da ciência processual, à alteração do conteúdo programático das Escolas de Direito e à formação de um novo profissional da área jurídica. Dentre os métodos de resolução de conflitos existentes...

Springer - Series Advances in Intelligent and Soft Computing, vol. 79; Recent trends in communication technologies led to a shift in the already traditional Alternative Dispute Resolution paradigm, giving birth to the Online Dispute Resolution one. In this new paradigm, technologies are used as a way to deliver better, faster and cheaper alternatives to litigation in court. However, the role that technology plays can be even further enhanced through the use of artefacts from the Artificial Intelligence field. In this paper we present UMCourt, an Online Dispute Resolution tool that borrows concepts from the fields of Law and Artificial Intelligence. The system keeps the parties informed about the possible consequences of their litigation if their problems are to be settled in court. Moreover, it makes use of a Case-based Reasoning algorithm that searches for solutions for the litigation considering past known similar cases, as a way to enhance the negotiation process. When parties have access to all this information and are aware of the consequences of their choices, they can take better decisions that encompass all the important aspects of a litigation process.; The work described in this paper is included in TIARAC - Telematics and Artificial Intelligence in Alternative Conflict Resolution Project (PTDC/JUR/71354/2006)...

Litigation in court is still the main dispute resolution mode. However, given the amount and characteristics of the new disputes, mostly arising out of electronic contracting, courts are becoming slower and outdated. Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) recently emerged as a set of tools and techniques, supported by technology, aimed at facilitating conflict resolution. In this paper we present a critical evaluation on the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) based techniques in ODR. In order to fulfill this goal, we analyze a set of commercial providers (in this case twenty four) and some research projects (in this circumstance six). Supported by the results so far achieved, a new approach to deal with the problem of ODR is proposed, in which we take on some of the problems identified in the current state of the art in linking ODR and AI.; The work described in this paper is included in TIARAC - Telematics and Artificial Intelligence in Alternative Conflict Resolution Project (PTDC/JUR/71354/2006), which is a research project supported by FCT (Science & Technology Foundation), Portugal. The work of Davide Carneiro is also supported by a doctoral grant by FCT (SFRH/BD/64890/2009).

This research presents the definition of a game model, adapted to represent the alternative dispute resolution processes, according to which an abstract model is proposed, splitting the negotiation in steps. By the description of each step, the objectives, and necessary tasks to achieve them, are identified. Based on the researches presented, for each step, tasks are identified that could use Artificial Intelligence techniques, to support negotiators or third neutrals to lead the processes. Besides the possibilities presented by other authors, related to information retrieval, argumentation models, negotiation systems, among other subjects, two new approaches are presented: a conceptualization building system and the use of information filtering for recommender systems; O trabalho apresenta a definição de um modelo de jogo adaptado para representar os processos de solução extrajudicial de conflitos, a partir do qual propõe-se um modelo abstrato em que o procedimento de solução de conflitos é dividido em etapas.

An overburdened court system adds to the disadvantages of women in Pakistan. Women entrepreneurs who lack the time and resources to battle a dispute in the courts also run the risk of being victimized for highlighting their problems. Mediation provides a valuable alternative, allowing women and others to settle disputes out of court. As a dispute-settlement mechanism, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is gaining prominence and increased application in most parts of the world. Its benefits are several. However, for countries where the justice system lacks efficiency, embracing ADR is also difficult. In 2006, International Finance Corporation (IFC) launched an ADR project with a goal of institutionalizing mediation for the first time in Pakistan. Although the project had no provision for separate gender activities, opportunities were created for reaching out to women entrepreneurs and others. This smart lesson relates our experiences and the lessons the authors learned, demonstrating in particular how gender became an integral part of the project and the impact it gained over time.

Alternative dispute resolution can help the justice system in a country function more efficiently. It often saves costs and time and increases user satisfaction. For cases that go back to court, however, the total cost and time may increase. Alternative dispute resolution can also have indirect benefits. It can increase the effectiveness of courts by reducing bottlenecks. And it can improve trust in the legal system, which may increase foreign investment.

The objective of this technical note is to evaluate the existing legal, regulatory and institutional framework of financial Alternative dispute resolution body, for example an ombudsman (ADR) mechanisms in Bulgaria, and to present the authorities with options for reform and improvement. There is a need to further strengthen and reform the existing financial ADR framework in Bulgaria. Fortifying the design and structure of financial ADR mechanisms is an important step to increase currently low levels of consumer trust in financial services. In addition, the implementation of the recently approved European Union (EU) Directive on ADR will require a significant amount of restructuring and reorganization of the existing ADR mechanisms in Bulgaria in order to be compliant with the new required standards. An ADR will not be a success unless consumers can be confident that financial services providers will take part and will follow decisions in favor of the consumer. Bearing in mind the Bulgarian context and the limitations imposed by the Bulgarian constitution...

The role of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in efforts to strengthen the rule of law is attracting increased interest in international development cooperation. From a development perspective, the principal interest in this question is a concern for expanding rights and opportunities for poor people who do not fully benefit from the protection of the law in their daily lives. Other interests in ADR, such as in commercial arbitration and court-annexed mediation in civil litigation, also have important positive implications for development. Facilitating commerce and expediting the disposition of lawsuits are valuable services and worthwhile undertakings. However, the principal focus for development is on the non-formal processes intended to expand access to justice. These include statutory schemes, such as the barangay justice system in the Philippines; state-sponsored mediation centers, such as those of the Procurador General in El Salvador; traditional systems that provide the vast majority of dispute-resolution services in many African countries; and systems of mediation and conciliation operated by public and private entities throughout the world. This paper briefly reviews the concept of development and related international cooperation. It then examines how the rule of law has been addressed in development programs and offers some thoughts about the contribution of ADR for advancing the rule of law and...

This PhD thesis explores how the legal infrastructure for dispute resolution in transnational securities transactions can be improved, considering the regulatory and legal limits of the financial sector in each jurisdiction under study (US, Europe and Brazil). The two main objectives of the work are to a) identify the problems that currently exist for a dispute resolution mechanism in the securities area that can be used transnationally and b) propose solutions that can create a safe legal environment that can be used by the investor in case regulatory rules or the terms of the transaction are breached. The work is justified by the fact that financial markets are legal constructions, making legal certainty and the mechanisms available to enforce the terms of a transaction and apply regulatory rules, especially to the investor that is part of the transaction, essential for the own existence of financial markets. Therefore, the existence of transnational financial markets also depends on the existence of a transnational legal infrastructure, at least broad enough to protect the interest of investors. The argument developed through the work is that the creation of a transnational legal infrastructure depends on the type of dispute that is considered...

RESUMEN. El proceso de Resolución de Disputas en Línea (R.D.L.) nació en EE.UU. en el ámbito del derecho, aplicando las nuevas tecnologías, trasladaron distintos procesos de la Resolución Alternativa de Disputas (negociación, mediación, conciliación y arbitraje) al entorno cibernético. Inicialmente, esta aplicación se limitó a disputas surgidas en la propia red y, de forma particular, a conflictos relacionados con el comercio electrónico donde resulta un éxito. Pronto se demostró su utilidad para muchos sectores económicos en los que la coincidencia física de las partes no resulta decisiva para la solución de la controversia o, al menos, no durante todo el proceso. En Europa, sin embargo, no se ha extendido aún el uso de los sistemas de R.D.L. Desde la Directiva 2008/52/CE del Parlamento Europeo y del Consejo de 21 de mayo de 2008 sobre ciertos aspectos de la mediación en asuntos civiles y mercantiles y desde la reciente Ley española 5/2012, de 6 de julio, de Mediación en asuntos civiles y mercantiles, se está impulsando el uso de la denominada mediación electrónica. Un paso más adelante sería integrar estos sistemas en la propia Administración de Justicia suponiendo un verdadero sistema de múltiples puertas (o ventanas si nos referimos a la pantalla del ordenador) de acceso a la justicia. En el presente artículo se abordan algunas cuestiones básicas sobre el régimen jurídico de esta mediación realizada por medios electrónicos. Sin embargo...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.; While arbitration and mediation have gained almost universal acceptance for settling commercial contract disputes, resolution of contract disputes in the Federal Government has continued to be slow, time consuming, and expensive. The participants in these processes have turned toward a new approach that offers an expedient, inexpensive, and less adversarial method for settling these disputes known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This thesis provides information on various methods of ADR, detailing advantages, disadvantages, and characteristics for case suitability. The research found, through the interviews conducted and the literature reviewed, that there are general misconceptions and impediments to the implementation of ADR. There was a general lack of knowledge of the different methods of ADR available. Many of the personnel interviewed did not know of their full authority to use ADR as provided by the Administrative Dispute Resolution Act. One major obstacle that was found in evaluating ADR is that there is an absence of reliable data to support the claims of ADR. Personnel interviewed in the Federal Government indicated that there is a lack of incentives for the Government to use ADR. One reason for this was due to the use of the 'continued performance clause.; Captian...

Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited; In order to avoid unnecessary, time consuming, and costly litigation, the Department of Defense, and more specifically the United States Navy, has adopted the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to resolve contract disputes. One of the less-used but highly successful ADR techniques is known as the Mini-Trial. The primary goals of this thesis are to provide contracting professionals and attorneys with a better understanding of the Mini-Trial, explore how the Navy might make better use of the technique, and outline the steps the Navy should take to further implement its use. The thesis provides information on the Mini-Trial's background, factors for use, advantages and disadvantages, format, and roles of participants. The researcher found that there are a number of issues surrounding the Mini-Trial including; problems with neutrals and principals, and the perception that the Navy was reluctant to use the technique. Principal findings from the research revealed that there are key measures of success for the Mini-Trial, that barriers exist to convince contractors to participate, that there are certain conditions for its use, and that the Navy will increase its use of the technique in the further. Principal recommendations are that the Navy should not second guess its principals...

An effective commercial arbitration regime matters for foreign investors. It gives parties the autonomy to create a dispute resolution system tailored to increasingly complex disputes. Foreign investors view arbitration as a way to mitigate risks by providing legal certainty on enforcement rights, due process, and access to justice. The Arbitrating and Mediating Disputes indicators assess the legal and institutional framework for commercial arbitration, mediation, and conciliation regimes in 100 economies. All surveyed economies recognize arbitration as a tool for resolving commercial disputes and only nine economies have not acceded to the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. In the Arbitrating and Mediating Disputes indicators, High Income OECD and Eastern Europe and Central Asia are the regions that reformed their laws on alternative dispute resolution the most between 2011 and 2012. The data also show that, globally, arbitration proceedings take 326 days on average...

Alternative dispute resolution encompasses arbitration, mediation, conciliation, and other methods-short of formal litigation-for resolving disputes. Alternative dispute resolution offers several advantages over a lawsuit. It is less adversarial and in some cases can be faster and less expensive. It can also reduce court workloads. For these reasons its use is being promoted by court reformers in many developing and transition economies.

Numa sociedade cada vez mais e mais virada para a Internet e para a procura de informação e soluções para todo e qualquer tipo de problema de forma instantânea, imediata ou mesmo urgente, a resolução de conflitos na sua forma mais comum, ou seja, no recurso judicial aos tribunais, parece começar a ser demasiado demorada e ineficaz. Neste sentido, as pessoas procuram, de uma maneira cada vez mais recorrente, alternativas para solucionar estes conflitos, de forma mais célere, sem que no entanto a avaliação da solução encontrada perca qualidade. Surgem, então, sistemas de resolução alternativa de conflitos (Alternative Dispute Resolution – ADR), ou ainda no ambiente Web (Online Dispute Resolution – ODR). As técnicas de ADR com maior destaque são a negociação, a arbitragem e a mediação. Em qualquer dos casos, facilmente podemos associar a sua eficiência e eficácia à utilização da argumentação no processo, satisfazendo as exigências dos implicados no conflito, já que é dada voz às suas perspectivas sobre o mesmo. Argumentar permite expor factos e justificações de suporte ou oposição relativamente ao conflito, enriquecendo a solução e tornando mais claro o entendimento da mesma. Neste trabalho será abordado o tema dos ADR...

St. Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth provides an important resource for the work of dispute resolution. The letter reveals Paul’s unique approach to conflict. Using modern categories of alternative dispute resolution borrowed from the legal sciences, one can identify the structural approaches to conflict: negotiation, mediation, arbitration, and adjudication . These categories help a reader to peer behind Paul’s rhetoric to examine his method. Faced with particular conflicts in Corinth over divided factions in the community, disagreements about sexual conduct, and differences regarding food, Paul has many strong opinions. However, he never imposes those opinions on the Corinthian congregation. Paul never adjudicates, arbitrates, or even mediates between the parties. Instead, Paul undermines traditional understandings of power and authority in dispute resolution by demonstrating a new, cross-shaped, power-subverting approach to conflict. In addressing disputes, Paul articulates a new social ethic of solidarity based in love and points the community towards a new goal that transcends winning or losing, namely growing into the body of Christ as an organic whole. Through this process of formation, Paul seeks to both empower members of the congregation to negotiate disputes among themselves and to build up the community as whole.

Paul’s approach to conflict contrasts sharply with contemporary and traditional alternatives. Jewish practice...

Adjudication has recently been introduced to the South African construction industry as an alternative dispute resolution mechanism. This study investigates what the requirements are for the industry to realize the full potential of adjudication. To this end the study reviews the necessary contractual, institutional and legislative framework, discusses relevant skills and available training, and establishes what impact all these have on the current practice of adjudication. A literature review was conducted, covering the local and international practice of adjudication. A structured interview was conducted with adjudicators, and those who were out of geographic reach were sent a survey questionnaire. The results obtained were statistically analysed. Adjudication appears to have found acceptance in the South African construction industry, but it was found that the industry is not yet able to realize the full potential of adjudication, the main reason for this being a lack of knowledge.
