Emma van Gelder conducted two-month visiting research at the University of Oxford, Centre for Socio-Legal Studies as part of her PhD under supervision of Professor Christopher Hodges (Trinity Term 2019 May and June).
As the United Kingdom (England and Wales) forms one of her selected case-studies of her PhD, she choose to conduct her research at Oxford. During her time there she researched the UK civil justice system and more specifically, the sector of Consumer ADR within the justice system. Next to theoretical research, she conducted about ten interviews with Consumer ADR schemes throughout the UK that used IT within their dispute resolution process.
