EDR Blog

Welcome to the EDR Blog

Every other week, the EDR Blog publishes an article on topics related to environmental dispute resolution (EDR) and collaboration. This amounts to an average of 25 articles each year, written by leading mediators, facilitators, and collaborative professionals nationwide, as well as by EDR Program staff and graduate students. Typical blog topics include:

  • Best practices and lessons learned for dispute resolution and collaborative problem solving
  • Opportunities for collaborative problem solving around current controversial issues
  • Examples of successful collaboration and dialogue

The EDR Blog is hosted by the University of Utah’s Environmental Dispute Resolution Program (EDR Program). Established in 2012 as part of the Wallace Stegner Center for Land, Resources and the Environment in the S.J. Quinney College of Law, the EDR Program promotes collaboration, mediation and other dispute resolution processes as alternative methods to resolve public policy conflicts, especially around environmental and natural resource issues. The EDR Program is one of only a handful of programs nationally with the capacity and tools to build consensus in situations where agreement often seems too difficult or impossible to reach.
