ADR Practice: A Look Back at the Profession's Response to 9/11 (Web)
September 11, 2009
Available for years only on commercial databases, attached to this post is the October 2001, Atlernatives to the High Cost of Litigation cover story on how conflict resolution professionals mobilized after terrorists hijacked four airplanes on Sept. 11, 2001, and use them to destroy the World Trade Center, and cause crashes and deaths at the Pentagon, and in a field in central Pennsylvania.
The ADR community, the story points out, weren't necessarily the first responders, but roles were established immediately that led to resources and efforts that continue today.
