Dr Patricia Živković has been appointed Guest Editor for the Special Issue of the Journal of Strategic Contracting and Negotiation (JSCAN) on Dispute, Claim and Conflict Management.
The official IACCM’s journal, JSCAN is an international peer-reviewed journal for research and theory about practices that challenge the status quo in strategic contracting and negotiations and the commercial implementation of business strategy or policy.
The Special Issue aims to bring together research that identifies the commercial and legal interests that drive the choices behind the dispute resolution mechanism. In that regard, some of the suggested topics are:
- Alternative dispute resolution methods such as negotiation and mediation can be beneficial for the contracting process, most notably after the contract conclusion (the post-award phase);
- Early claim and dispute identification and prevention;
- Impact and role of technology in dispute prevention and resolution;
- Procedural issues and the insufficiencies of the legal and the regulatory framework that impact the effective resolution of disputes, with a focus on those that can be addressed at the stage of contract drafting.
Authors of accepted papers will qualify for the JSCAN Best Paper Award!
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 15 June 2020. More information on the Special Issue and the link for the abstract submission is available here.
