Conflict Management in Norway: Practical Dispute Resolution

He focuses on two major questions: What can be done to relieve the criminal justice system of our city and state governments of their intolerable difficulties in delivering justice to the community, and what can be done to help the citizen feel that the city cares and is concerned with the protection of basic social contract demands?
