An adversarial process is a form of truth-seeking or conflict resolution in which identifiable factions hold one-sided positions.

Adversarial processes are especially common in politics, where they're encouraged by the current use of democratic voting systems.

Legal courts often employ adversarial processes to evaluate a defendant's alleged wrong-doing and decide appropriate restitution. Legal ethical codes and standards of evidence are needed in order to ensure that the overall process approximates truth-seeking.

The operation of a prediction market may also be seen as a kind of adversarial process, in which bid and ask prices are constantly compared.
