Negotiation and Conflict in the News
Loving v. Virginia
Fifty years ago, in the landmark case of Loving v. Virginia, the US Supreme Court decided that marriage is a constitutional right and withholding it – such as by forbidding interacial marriage – is unconstitutional. In this article, Palma Strand, a professor at Creighton University’s School of Law, discusses the profound social and political effects of that decision. (Omaha World-Herald)
“On Wednesday 29 March Theresa May will trigger Article 50, starting the process of Britain leaving the EU. The scale of the challenge should not be underestimated.” (The Mirror). This article maps out the negotiations surrounding what might turn out to be the messiest divorces of our times.

In this guest post for EDRblo.org, Noam Ebner suggests ways in which Online Dispute Resolution could benefit environmental conflict resolution.
Creighton University introduces its new Bachelors-to Masters degree program, combining Justice and Peace Studies with Negotiation and Conflict Resolution.
