At the February meeting of the Dispute Resolution Forum (DRF), Jamie Suarez Potts will draw parallels between her work in South Africa, working with leaders in townships following the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and her efforts in the US, where she is associated with the New England Region Criminal Justice Program of the American Friends Committee. Ms. Pott’s major interest lies in exploring alternative paths to achieving justice.

Following the DRF meeting, John Dugan will lead the PEERVision Case Conference in a discussion of a landlord-tenant dispute illustrating the mediator’s dilemma: choosing between informed consent and neutrality.
