Following a series of seminars early this year, recent research focuses on humanitarian intervention and the role of non-Government Organizations (NGO's) in complex humanitarian emergencies.
Coming to Terms: Shaping Effective Negotiation and Dispute Resolution is a unique publication by the Program on Conflict Management and Negotiation (PCMN). The series of executive summaries of in-depth papers disseminates the best research by scholars and practitioners to those involved in negotiation and conflict management -including executives, professionals, consultants, and government officials.
Volume 1, No. 1 is an executive summary of a paper by Ellen Gutterman, a Junior Fellow at the Harrowston Program in Conflict Management and Negotiation at the University of Toronto. It is intended to bring systematic findings about negotiation and dispute resolution to the wider community.
Volume 1, No.2 is an executive summary of a paper by Glen Whyte and James Sebenius. This paper describes how the phenomenon known as "anchoring" can affect the outcomes of negotiations.
Volume 1, No.3 is a full-length paper by Michael
Bryans, Bruce D. Jones, and Janice Gross Stein that examines the difficulties
of humanitarian assistance in the age of complex emergencies. We
invite you to examine this important study for yourself via a .PDF
