ECR and Technology Network
Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution and RESOLVE
have jointly launched the ECR and Technology Network,
an online community of EPP/ECR practitioners, Agency personnel,
academics, and IT service providers focused on best practices
around the use of technology in multiparty processes.
The online hub for this project will offer demos of cutting-edge
tools, case studies, best practices, and guidelines for
how to best select and integrate technology into processes
for the optimal benefit of participants. Check out the
website at ecrtech.net and join in for free.
Environment and Public Policy Section
Environment and Public Policy Section of the Association
for Conflict Resolution has launched a new Section website
that hosts organization information and archives as well
as blogs written by a wide variety of practitioners and
EPP/ECR experts. The site serves as a hub for the activities
of the section, the primary channel for information dissemination,
and the registration home for conferences and events.
All content is available over RSS and daily email updates,
and the site works in conjunction with Facebook, LinkedIn,
and Twitter. Check it out at acrepp.org.
Community Court is a robust platform created by eBay and
PayPal to enable groups to continually govern themselves,
make decisions, and resolve disputes.
It can support peer juries, voting, polling, evaluation,
and governance functions. It is massively scalable, even
into handling hundreds of thousands of cases per month,
and completely customizable with a back-end rules-driven
engine that can be changed on the fly. View it in action
at ebaycourt.com and gebruikersjury.marktplaats.nl.
