The Symposia on Advanced Issues in Dispute Resolution’s purpose is to bring together scholars and professionals to engage in purposeful conversation around critical issues in the field of conflict studies and dispute resolution.
Each symposium theme is different, but all share a unique and intimate in-the-round format that intentionally supports engaged and focused conversation and exploration of the symposium theme.
Symposium sessions are facilitated by carefully selected “theme leaders” who provide expertise and promote participative dialogue of all attendees.
