The Wisdom of Elders: Peace-Making in Alaska
Session 7.2, Saturday, April 30, 2011 3:00 - 4:00 p.m.

In Alaska elders are celebrated as the mediators and peace-makers in the communities in which they live. This presentation reports on themes emerging from a series of interviews with Elder Peacemakers and themes common to their practices, and shares their insights on peace-making and mediation.

You will be encouraged to discuss these practices and insights, to consider how these they might apply in your own life and the organizations in which you work and to consider using these insights in business, government, and other organizational settings.

It will conclude by mapping out the interesting connections between traditional peacemaking and modern dispute-systems design. 


Information about Dr. Brian Jarrett

Dr. Jarrett brings a lively interactive approach to his workshop presentations and a refreshing sociological approach to the practice of dispute resolution. He is a sociologist, lawyer-mediator, and professor at the University of Alaska Department of Justice. Dr. Jarrett’s work focuses on improving the practices of mediation, peace-making, and dispute-systems design. He often draws on sociological analysis to explore interesting connections between law, mediation, and dispute-resolution.

Examples of Dr. Jarrett's publications include:

  • The Integral Mediation Project, manuscript (2011) 
  • Beauty and the Beast: Mediating Claims of Workplace Sexual Harassment, Rutgers Journal of Conflict Resolution (2010).

  • Dispute Resolution: Theories, Methods, and Practices, Salisbury University Press (2008).
  • Resolving Discrimination Disputes in Higher Education: Qualitative Interviews at the University of Hawaii, Appalachian Law Journal (2007).

Dr. Jarrett's presentations are particularly interesting to those who want to look outside the standard mediation maps and paradigms. He started The Integral Mediation Project where mediators explore eclectic approaches to mediation.
