This course takes a leadership perspective on negotiation. It recognises that, in the complex realities of fragile and conflict-prone contexts, negotiations between even “private” parties cannot be divorced from the difficult social and political environments in which they unfold. Combining exploration of barriers to conflict resolution with strategic approaches to overcoming these, the course provides students a conceptual and practical understanding of their potential to lead interest-based problem-solving in ways that reduce destructive conflict and increase collaborative potential between individuals and organisations. The course priorities rigorous inquiry over categorical answers for unpredictable and rapidly changing environments.
