The drivers, unknown to one another, shared only one goal of finding a parking space among an abundance of free spaces, yet somehow they managed to run into one another. Abundance sometimes breeds its…See More

Posted on January 30, 2012 at 11:29am 1 Comment

I have been thinking about the future lately.  Mostly because I have had my graduate students doing a scenario exercise about the future directions of conflict resolution.  Today, the 'thing' in CR is to do development work; a conflict resolution degree has become for many a development degree by stealth.  So, as students plan their careers they often do so with the development angle in mind.

Hello.

It seems we share some common interests so I wanted to make my introduction. I'm Chris from New Orleans. I'm studying Comparative legal systems at Tulane Law School and am very interested in Human Rights and Mediation and Negotiation. Given our common interests it would be good to start communication so we can refer to each other for advice in the future. Please take a minute to view my page and leave a message if you like.

peace.
