Project status: active

NTF involvement: creator (since 2019)

Description: NTF negotiation exercises engage participants through immersive learning, educate them on critical conflicts in the Eurasian and Euro-Atlantic sphere, and allow them to practice advanced negotiation, decision-making, and conflict management techniques. Our exercises have been used across Harvard University (including the Department of Government, the Advanced Workshop in Multiparty Negotiation and Conflict Resolution at Harvard Kennedy School, and the Executive Education course Senior Executives in National and International Security) as well as by external organizations, such as the U.S. Department of State’s Foreign Service Institute.
