One Man’s Treasure: Environmental Dispute Resolution (APA2210.01)

Peter Pagnucco

On this ever shrinking planet, the likelihood that one will be a stakeholder in a dispute over natural resources, property development or environmental injury has never been greater. Through experiential learning, this course in environmental dispute resolution is designed to help equip students to effectively engage such conflict. We will examine the complexity of environmental disputes and, focusing on collaborative, multiparty processes, we will structure and work through processes intended to bring resolution. Through readings, written assignments, class exercises, and multi-party conflict resolution role plays, students will experience these processes from the inside out. Ultimately, students will develop a richer understanding of the challenges and opportunities of environmental dispute resolution which will help inform their decisions and actions when confronted with the inevitable environmental conflict.
