The Program on Negotiation Brown Bag Lunch Series Presents

*The Brazilian Experience on Dispute Systems Design (DSD): The TAM and 
Air France cases*

A presentation by* Diego Faleck* (LL.M. '06), Chief of Staff of the 
Secretariat of Economic Law of the Ministry of Justice in Brazil

The presentation will address the creation and work of the two first 
ever claims resolution facilities in Brazil, that took place after the 
crash of TAM Airlines Flight 3054 on July, 17, 2007 and of Air France 
Flight 447 on May, 31, 2009. The experience was based on the theoretical 
framework on negotiation and DSD acquired at Harvard Law School, which 
was used to advance the interests of the families of those who lost 
their lives and to avoid the enormous costs that would have been borne 
by the parties in resolving their claims.

513 federal deputies, 54 senators (two thirds of the total) and 1,057 
delegates to the 27 state assemblies. Paulo Sotero, a journalist and

the elections and offer perspectives on issues and factors likely to 
influence voter's choices.
