Conflict and dispute resolution

Every project is inherently complex and the money involved is often considerable.  Some would say that conflict and dispute is inevitable.  The theory of conflict and the techniques of conflict management and dispute resolution is the concern of this specialism. 

The international interest in this area is apparent from doctoral students and the subject of their theses.  In recent years the countries involved include England, Wales, Korea; Saudi Arabia, Taiwan and Iran.
