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.

Upon successful completion of the course, students will 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.

Synchronous teaching is comprised of live meetings online (see dates above). Asynchronous teaching is made up of e-lectures (i.e. recorded video lectures) and accompanying exercises on Moodle which students can work through at a time of their choosing in the designated week. The e-lectures include simulated negotiation exercises which students are expected to complete with others. In addition, an extended practical negotiation exercise is held live online. Reading is set for every session (regardless of whether it is synchronous or asynchronous).
