Alternative Dispute Resolution

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is informal litigation channels for dispute or complaint resolution. They consist of a process entailing arbitration, conciliation, mediation, political lobbying, and reconciliation. As prescribed by the UN’s New York Convention in 1958, ADR is a more efficient practice of dispute resolution excluding the court system, while promoting a free flow of social exchange in all areas of vocation not limited by legal, national, or geopolitical frameworks.
