Hi Tania
Our paths have crossed fleetingly in the past through NADRAC activities but also with regard to a nationally accredited course I promote called "Certificate IV in Understanding and Negotiating Sustainability Issues". I've now been awarded my PhD - in the fields of Peace, Conflict and Sustainability! It has also been published under the title: "Conflict, Sustainability and the Role of the Scholar- Reporter: A guide for compiling or assessing reports on decision-making processes dealing with social conflict and contentious sustainability issues" I've been doing a small amount of lecturing at the School of Sustainability at Murdoch Uni, but I would really like to talk with you about work opportunities, given my particular research interests, and the extent to which they overlap with your own. Good to see you on this network. I'll try and set up our 'friendship', and in the meantime I'll try and make contact via Endispute.

Thank you for your answer to my message. It is good to hear that there are people out there working for the highest ordered cause of altruist peace. Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions with which I may be able to help.

As far as mediation and negotiation is concerned, I feel that simple math tells us that the courts cannot keep up with the need for justice in all areas of life. Therefore expertise in these areas will only come in higher and higher demand in the future. I approach M&D as an integral part to my legal education. I would be very happy to correspond with you and any and all of your students.
