Membership of Australian Dispute Resolution Research Network

From time to time people ask how they can become members of the Australian Dispute Resolution Research Network.


We are an evolving network and at the 2016 Round Table in Hobart, time will be allocated to review our current approach and make some decisions about membership and organisational structure.


We don’t like hierarchies or unnecessary administration, so we don’t have any membership list or legal organisational framework. The way to become a member of the ADR Research Network is to subscribe to the blog at This is our primary means of communication. Although we do sometimes email people who have attended face to face meetings, we prefer to communicate via the blog so that all interested people can view it. Therefore it’s an “opt in” membership where you control whether you’re kept informed of network activity.

  • Subscription will mean that every time a post is made on the blog you will receive a notification alert to your email address.
  • Other ways to follow blog activity is through Facebook “ADR Research Network” and Twitter @ADRResearch, but engagement on these platforms is not necessary to keep track of blog activity.
  • You are welcome to make a guest blog post and/or request to be added as a regular contributor who can post directly. These requests can be directed to our blog editor Becky Batagol

At each annual face to face gathering, some primary responsibilities are allocated to network members for the following year. The current responsibilities are:

We hope that this clarifies our approach to membership.


Please don’t forget that abstract proposals for the 2016 Round Table are due by the end of May!
