Dispute resolution Dispute resolution is the process of resolving disputes between parties. Methods Methods of dispute resolution include: lawsuits (litigation) arbitration collaborative law mediation conciliation many types of negotiation facilitation One could theoretically include violence or even war as part of this spectrum, but dispute resolution practitioners do not usually do so; violence rarely ends disputes effectively, and indeed, often only escalates them. Some individuals, notably Joseph Stalin, have stated that all problems emanate from man, and absent man, no problems ensue. Hence, violence could theoretically end disputes, but alongside it, life. Dispute resolution processes fall into two major types: 1. Adjudicative processes, such as litigation or arbitration, in which a judge, jury or arbitrator determines the outcome. 2. Consensual processes, such as collaborative law, mediation, conciliation, or negotiation, in which the parties attempt to reach agreement. Not all disputes, even those in which skilled intervention occurs, end in resolution.
