Course Description:
In recent years, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms namely negotiation, mediation and arbitration have created a new problem-solving culture in the world of business and legal practice. This course will address the fundamentals and development of ADR mechanisms both in theory and practice. It will demonstrate how disputing parties are able to settle disputes outside the courtroom effectively and efficiently using these alternatives to litigation.

This course will be taught through a combination of lectures as well as simulations and demonstrations, in order to make ADR more interesting and more understandable to business students. The topic of negotiation discussed in this course is different from deal-making negotiation that leads to the conclusion of contracts and transactions. Negotiation discussed in this course concerns the settlement of disputes, which might endanger a transactional relationship that already exist; in other words, this kind of negotiation is used to keep the contract in dispute alive.

Course Objectives:
It is very important for business students to have a general knowledge about alternative methods of dispute settlement. Upon the completion of this course, it is expected that the students will have a clear understanding and a practical knowledge of the principles, processes and the institutions of ADR mechanisms in an international

    This course aims to provide students with a critical introduction to popular culture in Hong Kong. Students will learn to assess for themselves the form, meaning and significance of popular culture, as well as to analyse the formation of cultural and social identity of Hong Kong people through concrete case studies. Students will study popular culture as something more than leisurely entertainment: it is a cultural process already inscribed in relations of power. Students will be asked to analyse the politics of Hong Kong popular culture in its particular historical and geopolitical conditions: marginal, postcolonial, postmodern, cosmopolitan, transnational and perpetually transiting. The course will draw on, but not limited to these critical perspectives: postcolonial criticism, postmodernist reading, gender theory, media and cinema studies. Specific topics will be selected from such areas as: the changing cultural status of Hong Kong through the post-war decades, Western and Asian influences and the transformation of indigenous culture, cinema as mass entertainment, the consumption and politics of popular music, electronic media, and the printed media, etc.…
