Conflicts can cause significant damage to those involved and also to others affected by the consequences. However, conflict can also be a catalyst for positive change. Moreover, conflicts often have financial, political and structural repercussions. Dispute system design enhances the way we prevent and handle disputes. This symposium will build on the knowledge generated in this field over the past 30 years. Some of the nation's leading experts will explore current challenges and discuss possibilities to promote justice, enhance accountability, and maximize the impact of systems for addressing conflict.
