Generated a new EA idea. Readers, please let me know what you think:
EA Ventures once reported that conflict resolution mechanisms are important for project success. I have yet to participate in a project that has discussed conflict resolution. Should we have an independent effective altruism dispute resolution system? For example, a ″court″ of sorts that EA project teams could contractually bind themselves to in order to resolve conflicts in pre-specified ways? Retrospectively, group’s working on EA related projects could refer to the advice of the court for independent guidance. A complementary investigatory service could be established to investigate matters of interest to the court, for instance, misuse of funds.
I prefer public conversations for the reasons that Brian Tomasik does.
Can we continue to discuss other considerations here?
I weighed up the pros and cons for an EA PR agency.
What do you think?
Effective public relations (PR) agency?
Avoids duplication of effort
Facilitates relationships between the community and aligned journalists and thought leaders
