Negotiation as a Tool for Dispute Resolution and Conflict Management in a Changing World


Bello Adesina Temitayo


This article examines strictly negotiation as an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanism in managing and resolving conflicts in the present age. Conflict which is a neutral phenomenon and an unavoidable consequence of human interaction in any society is inevitable. Rather than going through the rigorous proceedings of litigation or court, this article brings to mind the existence of other liberal methods of resolving disputes. Relevant international and local conflicts are examined in the bid of depicting negotiation as an effective tool of resolving them.
