The main objective of this academic activity is to approach the different ADR measures as ways to achieve justice in interpersonal legal relationships.

The specific objectives of the activity are:
(1) To analyze all types of ADR measures, comparing the advantages and disadvantages, in relation to legal proceedings.
(2) To acquire sufficient notions about the regulatory framework of ADR measures in the European Union and in other areas.
(3) To take into consideration ethical issues that can arise in ADRS, such as the principles of fairness, competence, integrity, etc.
 (4) To introduce the relational justice approach and valuate the enormous possibilities of ADR measures to promote justice in interpersonal relations, the assurance of peace and the protection of human rights and human dignity.
 (5) To study the philosophy of mediation, through a comparative analysis of its possible contexts and roles, including different types of mediation and conciliation.
 (6) Collectively reflect on the possibilities that the figure of arbitration exceeds institutional and commercial limits, to find a global model more oriented to material justice.
 (7) To assess the potential of ODR systems for the development of the collective learning of relational justice, creating an evergrowing base of social awareness content.
 (8) To analyze the figure of the ombudsman as a constant promoter of justice in all areas (public, social, business, private).
