The pressures of racial conflict are developing a new professional field. It is called "Conflict Resolution" or "Community Dispute Settlement." Arbitrators, law and business professors, economists, sociologists and other experts are conferring, organizing and setting themselves upon this new business. The Ford Foundation, the American Arbitration Association and a group of arbitration notables are deeply involved. Their objective is to assist in negotiating settlements of racial disputes. Their efforts are in line with Congressional policies in favor of conciliation efforts in employment, housing and community disputes. Administrative policies, such as the Department of Labor support for "hometown solutions" of racial disputes in the Construction industry, follow the same pattern.
