Registration is now open for the ACR Environment and Public Policy Section

The Environment and Public Policy Section of the Association for Conflict Resolution has announced that registration is now open for its conference to be held at the Massachusetts Institute for Technology in Cambridge, MA June 28 – 30, 2006. Chaired by Professor Lawrence Susskind, Director of the MIT-Harvard Public Disputes Program and Harry Manasewich, President of Human Factor Dispute Resolutions, “Deliberative Democracy: New Directions in Public Policy Dispute Resolution” will offer participants the opportunity to network with each other while learning from top theorists and practitioners of Public Policy Dispute Resolution and Deliberative Democracy (democratic civic engagement). Keynote addresses and workshops will focus on the intersection of theory and practice in resolving public disputes as a means of deepening civic engagement, the role of practitioners in resolving intractable disputes around social and moral issues such as abortion and rebuilding the Gulf Coast, and work that goes on in other countries to resolve conflicts. The conference will also examine public dispute resolution as a business, leveraging financial and other data gathered from surveys of the top dispute resolution individuals and firms. For more information or to register, go to the website www.eppconference.org. Or, you can also contact Anne Mansfield with your questions at 802-831-1338 or eppinfo@vermontlaw.edu.
