Abstract

A dispute resolution mechanism called Adjusted Winner (AW), developed by Steven J. Brams and Alan D. Taylor is used to propose plausible solutions to the pulp mill conflict between Argentina and Uruguay. By allocating 100 points over the issues that divide them, AW produces settlements that are equitable, efficient, and envy free for both Argentina and Uruguay. Based on established positions from each side, results show that Argentina is consistently awarded the issues of liquid emissions, atmospheric emissions, and the environmental impact assessment, whereas Uruguay is awarded the technological, and roadblock issue either in their entirety or in a majority split.
