Abstract

This article examines alternative approaches to conflict resolution by developing a theoretical framework that relates dispute resolution practice to philosophical assumptions about authority and knowledge. By investigating the assumptions underpinning interest-based bargaining and mediation their link to direct democracy and challenge to managerial authority are revealed at the level of theory and practice.
