- The field of dispute resolution has marked a turning point with Dispute Systems Design (DSD)
since the late 1980s. Since then, rather than on developing dispute resolution procedures for
individual case, the more emphasis has been on adopting a broader perspective, asking how
alternative dispute resolution procedures can be most effectively used to form an integrated
system for dealing not with just a single dispute, but with the frequent stream of disputes in
specific organization or communities. Some researchers find there exist overarching principles
for designing effective dispute resolution systems.
Dr. Kim applies the recent theory of DSD to the most frequent public disputes in the past 10
years in Korea, that is, siting controversies on waste management facilities. He diagnoses the
current Korean dispute system design associated with waste management facilities, juxtaposes
the overarching principles of DSD on the current Korean dispute system design with some
actual case studies, and finally recommends some innovation in the current DSD in Korea. Dr.
Kim suggests that the major problem in current disputes in Korea to tackle first might not be the
matter of civility of disputants or (how to educate them), but the matter of creativity of
disputants, or (how to motivate them first) which hinges on the appropriate structures or design
of the integrated dispute system.
