Abstract

Jesuit spiritual principles and practices offer both a challenge and an endorsement of essential principles of Peacebuilding and Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). This article examines the parallels between Jesuit values and the mission of ADR programs to educate conflict specialists and peacemakers, and discusses the challenges Ignatian spirituality sets to ADR scholarship at large and in Jesuit universities in particular. Specific consideration is given to the way that the Jesuit values support ADR scholarship, education, and practice, and pose challenges to the depth at which these are pursued in ADR scholarship in Jesuit Institutions.

Keywords: Alternative Dispute Resolution, ADR Education, Values
