Author: BASESwiki - initiative of UN Special Representative John Ruggie, Published on: 25 January 2010
BASES, or Business and Society Exploring Solutions, recently re-launched its online dispute resolution wiki, vastly improving upon the resources and usability of the website. BASESwiki 2.0 is driven by a new set of community tools built to facilitate more communication and collaboration between contributors. Noteworthy additions include:
• Fully searchable database of dispute mechanisms, resources, and case stories
• Seek Assistance tool to connect users with experienced contributors
• Improved methods for submitting information; recognition for top contributors
• Social media integration (Discussions, Event Calendar, User Profiles, Twitter, RSS)
The mission of BASESwiki is to develop a self-sustaining online community where stakeholders can share information, analysis, and learning about dispute resolution... Currently available in English, BASESwiki 2.0 will be translated into Spanish and Korean by March 2010, with Russian, Japanese, and Chinese versions to follow shortly after.
