Mediation for the resolution of disputes and agreement is an age-old tradition in many countries in the Asia Pacific region. In “Culture, Conflict, and Mediation in the Asia Pacific”, Bruce E. Barnes studies and analyzes the cultural themes and practices and preferred conflict resolution mechanisms of China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Philippines, Indonesia and Thailand. With over 30 different stories, case studies, and conflict resolution scenarios, Barnes’ study presents one of the first really detailed pictures of the mediation tradition in the Asian Pacific region and compares them with evolving mediation systems in the West.
