Alternative Dispute Resolution

If you have a legal dispute to settle with someone, you can do so through traditional means such as court, but you can also do so by agreeing to settle the dispute through the decision of a third party such as an arbitrator or arbitration tribunal, mediator, or other body.  These methods are referred to as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). In the Internet governance space, Online Dispute Resolution (ODR) features most prominently.
