University Conflict Resolution Research & Resources Project: A Systems-Based Approach for HKU

Principal Investigator: Ms. Katherine Lynch; Co-Investigator: Mrs. Fiona O’Donnell

This project reflects a desire to develop and design a systems-based approach to collaborative and problem solving conflict management and dispute resolution within the HKU community. The main objective is for fair and timely resolution of the broad range of student and faculty conflicts and disputes through the appropriate use of less adversarial and more collaborative problem solving ADR processes such as mediation (particularly in matters relating to internal complaints, disciplines, grievance and external complaints and concerns). It envisions a more holistic and cohesive approach to the development and implementation of early conflict management and dispute resolution systems within the wider HKU community.
