Our Spring semester clinical projects allowed us to think about dispute systems design in a variety of contexts and settings and to tailor recommendations to meet the needs of a wide variety of stakeholders—from an environmental watchdog to drug court teams; from schools in the midst of entrenched conflict to student, staff, and faculty on an American college campus.
The Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) is a global standard to promote the open and accountable management of oil, gas and mineral resources. It seeks to address the key governance issues of the oil, gas and mining sectors. HNMCP provided EITI with research support and recommendations for its current grievance mechanism review.
The New Hampshire Adult Drug Treatment Court (NHADTC) requires a team of both court and non-court professionals to manage client referrals, client monitoring, and drug court policies and procedures. The NHADTC engaged HNMCP to identify common conflicts among drug court teams and give the Drug Court Coordinator and the ADR Coordinator advice on how to better manage such conflicts.
Seeds of Peace is a non-profit organization that works with young people and educators to inspire and cultivate new generations of global leaders in communities divided by conflict. Seeds engaged HNMCP to conduct stakeholder assessments to explore the ways that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and conflict in general, show up in schools in the region and how Seeds of Peace might help students and educators engage conflict more effectively.
Wellesley College is a one the nation’s premier liberal arts colleges and widely acknowledged as the leading college for women. Wellesley engaged HNMCP to offer recommendations for the redesign of informal grievance resolution processes on their campus, for faculty, staff and students.
