Adobe iconCity of Asheville / Buncombe County Water System Mediation: An Evaluation
L. Steven Smutko and Lynn Weller, 2008.
This report presents an analysis of a stakeholder collaboration or public dispute resolution case that did not reach a resolution. We propose and evaluate three alternative hypotheses of why the collaboration failed. For a discussion of this report and the mediation upon which it based, visit the UNC School of Government Public Public Disputes Program website.
