About the course

This course focuses on key concepts and tools of negotiation and mediation, drawing on research literature as well as practice. The main emphasis is on how to negotiate effectively and reach an agreement, and common obstacles and challenges to this goal. Mediation is also covered, as a form of third-party intervention which at times can help get negotiations started and reach a successful conclusion. You will learn negotiation concepts and practice tools in exercises and simulations. These take place in settings ranging from interpersonal and communal to global.
