Semester:

Offered: 

2018
Stanford University
Stanford Graduate Summer Institute 2018

Instructors: Janet Martinez, Brenna Marea Powell, Arvid Bell
Develop the analytical, practical and interpersonal skills of negotiation, decision-making, and conflict resolution. The course integrates theory and practice: the first two days are devoted to fundamentals of negotiation and the process of collaborative decision-making; the final three days culminate in a capstone simulation experience called “The Transition.” The Transition is an intensive, multi-party negotiation simulation based on real-life peace talks in Afghanistan, providing the opportunity for students to put everything they have learned in the first half of the course into practice in a realistic, immersive environment.
Audience: Open to all graduate students in any discipline interested in the public policy decision-making processes (particularly those who have not had a chance to explore these issues extensively through their coursework), as well as postdoctoral fellows, if space allows.
