Participants are asked to describe good practices. They are also provided with techniques for their daily negotiations, for their preparations, actions, and reviews. Course Description : Negotiation is central to the work of diplomacy. Using case studies from international bargaining, this course aims to improve participants' analytical and interpersonal skills in their continual negotiations. Three themes will be addressed in the course. (1) It is important to prepare the strategy before engaging in negotiations, especially when strong coalitions and consensus are needed, and to improve the quality of relationships, internally and externally, before any other action. (2) Negotiating the process and agenda is needed before dealing with problems and issues. In a meeting, negotiators must also communicate effectively, and use active perception before active persuasion, understanding the other before presenting convincing arguments. (3) They also need to identify a common ground with others, before they express their own demands. In other words, participants will become more aware of how they behave in negotiation contexts.

Course Description : The Palestinian/ArabIsraeli conﬂict continues to be one of the most protracted and complicated conﬂicts on the international scene despite the many initiatives during its seven-decade history. Has the conﬂict deﬁed diplomacy ? Or has there not been enough political will to reach a peaceful solution ? This course aims at examining major diplomatic efforts exerted during different phases of the conﬂict and at identifying areas and causes of failure and success. Special emphasis will be put on the human dimension in an attempt to explore the role of key individual players, both regional and international, and their impact on the process.
