Negotiation in the News


This year the Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program launched a new lunchtime conversation series about current events and negotiation practices facilitated by its faculty. Each session broke open a particular news story and then asked how scholars and practitioners of negotiation and mediation might view the events and how we might be able to help push toward an integrative solution.

Topics included:

“Obama’s Contraception Plan and the Catholic Bishops: Is a Resolution Possible?”
Prof. Bob Bordone

“Brokering a Republican Presidential Candidate”
Rory Van Loo
Assistant Director

“Renegotiating Greek Sovereign Debt: the Problem of ‘Vulture Fund’ Holdouts”
Jeremy McClane
Lecturer on Law and Clinical Instructor

“Defusing Nuclear Tension in Iran”
Chad Carr
Lecturer on Law and Clinical Instructor
