IAP2 August Webinar: IAP2 White Papers

Research on Conflict Management and Evaluation
August 9, 2016, 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM (PDT)

Earlier this year, the IAP2 Canada Research Committee produced its first two White Papers, responding to requests from IAP2 members for a comprehensive overview of research in various aspects of the field.

The August webinar featured Kate Nelischer, who wrote on research into ways of dealing with conflict in a P2 process; and Karen Zypchyn, who looked at various methods for determining whether a P2 process has "worked."
