Publication of Chapter in The Consensus Building Handbook

Meridian Institute Senior Partners John Ehrmann and Barbara Stinson co-authored a chapter in The Consensus Building Handbook, a reference guide compiled and edited by the Consensus Building Institute and published in 1999. Their chapter is entitled “Joint Fact-Finding and the Use of Technical Experts.” It explores how stakeholders with differing viewpoints can work together to jointly gather information and conduct scientific analyses.


The Consensus Building Handbook also includes a short guide to consensus building that can be used as an alternative to Robert’s Rules of Order, along with 16 additional chapters on various aspects of consensus building and 17 case studies. The book won the 1999 Book Prize for Excellence in Alternative Dispute Resolution from the CPR Institute for Dispute Resolution.
