Public Dispute Resolution
Academic Term and Year
This course is an introduction to the public policy formation and implementation process. Public organizations encounter many situations where negotiation skills and mediation/arbitration training in a public context is useful. Neighborhood disputes, development issues or special interest concerns require public officials to negotiate and mediate between parties in order to reach consensus and resolution to different opinions and points of view. These skills are different than the typical policymaking and implementation training that most public officials are used to. In today's world of public participation and citizen awareness, negotiation and mediation skills are essential.
