[Excerpt] We maintain that there is an emerging generation of ADR researchers who are attempting to integrate societal concerns with macro- and micro-organizational perspectives. The newest generation of researchers is doing a better job of bridging the gap between practice and research and of building and testing empirical models based on sound theory. The papers we have heard at this session represent advances in ADR research that fulfill the hopes and expectations that Avgar and I expressed in our earlier paper.
