Fall 2015 Projects

Five clinical projects in the fall of 2015 allowed us to bring conflict management skills training to a regional court system and to continue our systems design work—with a local college local law enforcement settings, with a federal agency, and a peacebuilding non-profit dear to our hearts.

The New Hampshire Superior Court Settlement Conference Pilot Program was established in early 2012 as a part of a Felony Case Flow plan for the Superior Court. HNMCP worked with the NH Superior Court in 2014 to evaluate the pilot program. In this fall semester follow-on project, students partnered with the Court to design and implement a one-day training for those participating in the revised Felony Settlement Conference Pilot.

 

Seeds of Peace

Seeds of Peace (SoP) is a non‐profit organization that inspires and cultivates new generations of global leaders in communities divided by conflict. We equip them with the skills and relationships they need to accelerate social, economic, and political changes essential for peace. SoP has engaged HNMCP to assess its own internal communication and stakeholder engagement systems and offer recommendations and strategies to improve these for more inclusive organizational decision-making.

The U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) is an independent federal investigative and prosecutorial agency with a mandate to protect federal employees and applicants from prohibited personnel practices. In the fourth clinic project with OSC, HNMCP will assess and make recommendations regarding OSC’s convening and pre-mediation process and will suggest tools OSC might make available to parties as they prepare for mediation.
