On Monday 3 December, around 25 excited dispute resolution scholars will gather on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland for the 7th Annual Roundtable of the Australian Dispute Resolution Research Network.
This is a meeting that provides respite for many of us. It is an academic experience designed to support dispute resolution research and researchers and to provide high quality, critical feedback on the papers presented there. It is so rare to find a scholarly forum where the emphasis is on feedback and where research development is central. You can see details of our previous meetings here.
In 2018 we are being hosted by Dr Susan Douglas of the University of the Sunshine Coast. Dr Lola Akin Ojelabi is the co-organiser of the roundtable. We are excited to welcome a number of international ADR scholars again, showing how attractive our forum is to dispute resolution scholars internationally. It is also wonderful to see so many PhD and research students presenting. We take the responsibility of providing a rigorous academic apprenticeship seriously.
