I received this announcement about a conference on Dispute Resolution and Religion that I thought others might find interesting:
The Aspen Center for Social Values presents Alternative Dispute Resolution: Is This the Future of Law? June 8-10, 2014. The submission deadline is Nov. 30, 2013.
The Conference seeks to engage scholars of Jewish studies, and Law & Religion, on the theme “Alternative Dispute Resolution: Is this the future of law?”, with a particular focus on religious courts of arbitration. Our approach is interdisciplinary, and we welcome proposals for papers from scholars of all fields, including history, law, cultural studies, and the social sciences. We envision panels on some of the following themes, and we welcome submissions that have a historical perspective as well as a contemporary one:
Recent Developments in ADR
Marriage, Divorce, & ADR
Enforcing Religious Arbitration
Islamic Law in America
ADR: Are Jewish Courts a Good Model for Success?
