Environmental Mediation, Communication and Some Recommendations for the Future.
Schuelke, L. David; Freeh, LaVern
This paper summarizes the proceedings of a seminar concerning the mediation of environmental disputes, conducted by the Center for Research in Scientific Communication at the University of Minnesota, Saint Paul. Keynote speaker Gerald Cormick, Director of the Office of Environmental Mediation in Seattle, addressed the problems of the mediator's role in conflict resolution, using the Snoqualmie River Dam controversy as an example of an environmental conflict. Results of a survey of seminar participants indicated favorable attitudes toward the concept of environmental mediation and toward the seminar itself. Recommendations for future study included the planning of further seminars and the development of a college course, "Mediation, Arbitration, and Third Party Intervention in Scientific and Technical Issues," on the Saint Paul campus.
