This collection of essays provides a balenced view of alternative dispute resolution. They are international in scope, with examples of efforts (some successful, some not) at dispute resolution involving Inuit and Arctic peoples, Dene, Gitxsan and Wet’suwet’en, Tsuu T’ina, Cree, Metis, Navajo, Maori, Aboriginal Australians, and Torres Strait Islanders. They have been written by theorists and practitioners, and by Aboriginals as well as non-Aboriginals. The book is divided into four sections: theoretical perspectives, international contexts, Canadian contexts, and issues of design and implementation.
