Transforming landscapes: Forging new ODR systems with a human face



This paper challenges the current paradigms used for development of on-line dispute resolution (ODR) and its application to regions in Asia that lack telecommunications infrastructure. The next generation of on-line dispute resolution systems will need to reflect both the diversity of cultures and the unique sociopolitical structures of the Global South and address issues related to peace building and conflict transformation using technologies already in use in the region, such as mobile telephony and community Internet radio.
