Scholarship from HNMCP & Affiliates

This page is a gateway to scholarship from Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program faculty and students in the field of dispute management and conflict engagement.

 

From the Field: A Topic-Focused Guide Series from the Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program

This guide series seeks to bring together learnings and insights from HNMCP’s clinical projects since its founding in 2006. The content of each of these guides reflects themes that have recurred across projects in a particular arena of dispute resolution, and includes prescriptive advice drawing on the recommendations our students have provided based on best practices from the field. In order to preserve confidentiality for our clients, these guides do not share the findings or recommendations of individual projects. We hope that this series can be useful to multiple audiences, including experienced practitioners in the field, academics who study dispute resolution systems, and leaders within organizations seeking to strengthen their mechanisms for conflict engagement.

 

From the Field: An Ombuds Guide

Oladeji Tiamiyu ’20, HLS/HNMCP alum; HNMCP Clinical Fellow 2020–current
The “Ombuds Guide” provides an overview of important learning lessons and insights HNMCP has gathered working with ombuds offices—at government agencies, colleges and universities, non-profits organizations, and private institutions, both domestic and international. It is our hope that this guide will provide guidance for both practitioners in the field and interested stakeholders about the challenges and opportunities with which ombuds grapple.
