A notable DSD practitioner has explained that “conflict is like water: we cannot live with too much or too little of it.” Conflict is an inevitable part of everyday life. We encounter it in our classrooms and workplaces. Various solutions have been offered, but as these institutions become ever larger and more complex, how can we best manage our conflicts to reap benefits and minimize costs?

    As the globe has gotten smaller, new types of conflicts have developed, and new ideas have formed on how to deal with them. Trade disputes can be brought to the World Trade Organization (WTO), corporations submit themselves to international arbitration norms, and the UN provides yet another forum for resolving disputes. This panel will discuss questions such as how have these systems evolved, what challenges they face, and how best to respond to those challenges.

    Our justice system traditionally presumes that conflicts arise between two parties: a single complainant and a single defendant. This notion is becoming increasingly outmoded. Class actions suits and mass tort cases test our current system’s ability to efficiently and justly resolve disputes while meeting the interests of multiple parties. Can we use DSD principles to rethink handling these types of complex situations?

    Constitutions map out a plan to resolve conflicts in society through legal and political processes. Drafters of constitutions are thus fundamentally Dispute Systems Designers. This panel will open up a dialogue between the field of DSD and the field of constitutional law, and find out what we can learn from each other.

    Where is Dispute Systems Design heading? What are the ethical questions facing a Dispute Systems Designer? To what extent can these principles be applied to other fields? What are its criticisms and how do scholars and practitioners respond? This panel will encourage the audience to think about these questions and build upon a strong foundation for the next generation of Dispute Systems Design scholarship.
