Intent[edit]

The dispute analysis group is an informal group of people interested in examining, documenting and analyzing the various dispute resolution processes in various WMF projects.

Purpose[edit]

Through the rational examination of various processes, including their methods and results, we will better understand the state of dispute resolution within particular projects and across WMF projects as a whole.

Goals[edit]

  • Document the mechanics and variables of various dispute resolution processes in WMF projects.
  • Document gaps in the various dispute resolution systems.
  • Document overlap in the various dispute resolution systems.
  • Provide analytic reports of various dispute resolution mechanisms, both as a whole and in particular cases.
  • Identify the most successful and functional of dispute management processes, with an analysis of the factors leading to such success and/or pragmatic value.
  • Identify the least successful and functional of dispute resolution practices, with an analysis of the factors leading to the breakdown and/or failure of these methods.
  • Provide essays and analytic reports suggesting means to better integrate real world dispute resolution techniques and knowledge into existing dispute resolution processes.
  • Provide essays and analytic reports suggesting means to reduce unneeded overlap and reduce gaps in coverage.

Essays[edit]

  • /Essays. Essays written by volunteers in the group.
