Master's Professional Reports Abstract

Public Policy Dispute Resolution and Public Interest Group Advocacy: Comparing Alternative and Traditional Processes

Public interest groups lack the resources to compete with business interests in traditional legislative, rulemaking, and litigation processes. The conventional wisdom in the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) field is that public interest groups benefit from the increasing use of public policy dispute resolution because ADR saves time and money. However, ADR may actually demand more of public interest groups' resources than traditional processes and produce less desirable outcomes.
