Abstract

Increasingly, commercial alternative dispute resolution (ADR) programs are being created throughout the world to meet the needs of local industries. These ADR centers provide a model of peaceful dispute resolution in both commercial and public arenas. This article describes the process of forming the first commercial ADR center in the West Bank/Gaza. The creation of an ADR center in this region demonstrates the reach and universality of ADR and its capacity to provide a common language for the resolution of disputes and contribute to local prosperity and development.

Keywords: commercial alternative dispute resolution, ADR, law and development
