Negotiations are of increasing importance in highly regulated sectors, particularly in network industries such as telecommunications and transport. Negotiating partners in these markets are often t equal with regard to their various sources and instruments of power.

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) mechanisms are discussed as an alternative to conventional negotiations.
