Alternative Dispute Resolution Summary

Alternative Dispute Resolution: A Developing World Perspective by Albert Fiadjoe (University of the West Indies)

This book highlights the tremendous shift in the traditional arrangements for the delivery of civil justice in the Commonwealth Caribbean, from litigation to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. Over the last quarter of a century, much learning has taken place on the topic of ADR and the literature on the subject is now voluminous.

This book puts forward the thesis that the peculiar experiences of the developing world ought to help reshape our traditional notions of ADR. Furthermore, the impact of globalisation on the developing world has brought with it special and peculiar challenges to our notions of civil and criminal justice which are not replicated elsewhere. This book will appeal to a wide readership.

The legal profession, students of law and politics, social scientists, mediators, the police, state officers and the public at large will find its contents of interest.

Alternative Dispute Resolution Reviews

'A highly acclaimed new book on alternative dispute resolution by a prominent local professor of law has recently been released by leading UK-based publisher on legal textbooks, Cavendish Publishing, adding to the indigenousness pool of available regional recourses on law and legal studies. The book written by the Professor of Public Law at the University of the University of the West Indies (UW1), and a former Dean of the Faculty of Law, Dr Albert Fiadjoe, and titled Alternative Dispute Resolution: A Developing World Perspective, promises to be a seminal text on alternative dispute resolution in jurisdictions in the developing world. It has been early anticipated by the legal profession and conflict resolution practitioners, as whole and is expected to resonate particularly with members of the judiciary in Commonwealth Caribbean jurisdictions who have increasingly made calls for the use of dispute resolution processes to be used as an alternative to traditional litigation. Described as a "work of exceptional merit" that is a "timely and relevant publication which locates much of its learning and discussion in the realities of the contemporary Caribbean and the wider global environment", Alternative Dispute Resolution: A Developing World Perspective has already earned much acclaim from the legal fraternity.' Calling the book 'a storehouse of necessary information', Sir David noted: "Professor Fiadjoe examines attempts in the region to incorporate processes of mediation in the area of criminal law. This is a novel departure from traditional works on ADR."' Daily Nation, Monday, January 24, 2005
