Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to provide some background on the current state of the domestic dispute-resolution field, as a basis for examining the possible connections between that field and the field of global conflict resolution. Therefore, the presentation here is an introductory survey, not an in-depth examination. It includes: (1) a description of the range of dispute-resolution processes currently in use in the domestic arena; (2) a short (modern) history of the dispute-resolution field in the United States, incorporating a survey of the current uses of particular processes in different substantive contexts; (3) a summary of the critical issues presently facing the dispute-resolution field and (4) some reflections, based on the above, on similarities and differences between the domestic and global fields.
