HNMCP Launching “From the Field” Guides Based on Learnings Over 15 Years of Dispute Resolution Projects

We are thrilled to launch “From the Field,” a new set of freely accessible, public guides.

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. 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.

The first guide available up on our website, authored by HNMCP Clinical Fellow Oladeji Tiamiyu, explores Ombuds offices: questions that arise, challenges encountered, and some advice and approaches drawn from real-world client experience and best practice. Check out Oladeji’s video trailer here, and we encourage you to share! Stay tuned in early October for an additional guide on restorative justice.
