Pepperdine Extern comments on the ICANN Multi-Stakeholder Model

Filed under: academic institutions — Frank Fowlie @ 11:09 am

Grace Ayres, a Masters’ student at Pepperdine University, has completed an externship with the ICANN Office of the Ombudsman.  Her externship has led Grace to write a very interesting paper about the ICANN Multi-stakeholder model.  The paper, and her observations, is written from the perspective of an outsider to the ICANN process who is also an expert in conflict resolution.  It is a very interesting paper, and well worth reading.

American Bar Association – Dispute Resolution Conference – Seattle

Filed under: general — Frank Fowlie @ 9:20 am

I have been attending the ABA conference on dispute resolution at Seattle.  I have been very surprised, and interested by the number of sessions which deal with Online Dispute Resolution (ODR).  These include Online Courts:  the Future of Small Claims?; Using the Internet to Offer the Most Capalable Mediation Services; Intergrating Conflict Resolutions Systems in Corporate America; and Teaching International Conflict Resolution with Video Games.
