A History of Alternative Dispute Resolution
ADR Bulletin
  • Laurence Boulle, Bond University

The lack of technological refinement belies a sophistication in dispute resolution practices which have evolved without courts and a formal state system and are suited to the needs of a collective hunter-gatherer society.
