This lecture aims to give an overview of the numerous ways in which parties to a conflict can obtain a solution or a termination of their conflict. The lecture will explain dispute resolution mechanisms such as mediation, conciliation, arbitration, direct negotiation, expert determination, partnering, dispute review board, mini-trial, baseball arbitration, bounded arbitration, med-arb, arb-med, arb-med-arb, etc. Consequently, the lecture will focus on how to make a conflict diagnosis in order to identify the best dispute resolution mechanism for a given conflict scenario. Particular emphasis will be put on mediation and how mediation is to be distinguished from other dispute resolution mechanisms.
