What's Happening in Conflict?
News From Creighton NCR
What have we been up to? See the latest newsletter from Creighton NCR!
In October 2018, Creighton's 2040 Initiative and Negotiation and Conflict Resolution (NCR) Program hosted the conversation "Disrupting Law, Reclaiming Justice" with a focus on Rules for a Flat World, Dr. Gillian Hadfield's timely and important book offering a critique of current law and legal infrastructure. Law and lawyers, according to Hadfield, are not available to most people both in the U.S. and worldwide and are concurrently unable to meet the sophisticated needs of today's globalized economy.
A June 2019 special issue of the Creighton Journal of Interdisciplinary Leadership, coedited by Profs., Palma Strand, Jacqueline N. Font-Guzmán, and Bernie Mayer, presents highlights of that conversation as well as additional perspectives that extend and deepen the discussion. Read more here.
