Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course aims to equip students with a robust knowledge base of the major theories and concepts of negotiation. Students will approach negotiation from structural (i.e. interests, parties etc.) and processual (i.e. interactive, cognitive) perspectives. A secondary - and equally important - objective is the development of students’ facility in negotiation practice. The synthesis of theory and praxis ultimately aims to enable students to negotiate in a range of intercultural contexts and thus contribute to their graduate employability.

The course is comprised of reading, class meetings which illuminate the required materials, as well as an extended (3 hour) practical negotiation exercise.

Upon successful completion of the course, students should be able to:
i. Describe the central frameworks of negotiation and critically analyze and evaluate the negotiation process;
ii. Consider and apply successful negotiation strategies to probable international diplomatic and/or managerial scenarios;
iii. Summarize the ethical ramifications of the main negotiation approaches;
iv. Pinpoint the bias(es) that are factors in the outcomes secured by both decision-makers and negotiators, and critically reflect upon the role of these biases in one’s own negotiation practice;
v. Analyze negotiation strategies in the context of East Asia and develop and apply appropriate behaviors.
