Politics is a matter of negotiation, the main goal – to come up with decisions concerning the distribution of money, power, security, autonomy etc. Sign up for the Stand Alone Module “How to Bargain in Global Politics?” and have a closer look at international negotiations both as an analyst and a participant at the bargaining table.

News from Dec 16, 2015

The Center for Global Politics Stand Alone Module “How to Bargain in Global Politics?” starting on January 5 offers both theoretical and practical insights into the realm of negotiations in the international political arena. Before the students enter the conflict setting and assume the roles of different actors relevant in the given situation, they will get introduced to the analytical literature on negotiations which is mostly based on empirical research of specific negotiation cases and focuses on the structure, actors, processes and outcomes of negotiations. In the second part of the module, they will be provided with background information in order to understand the core concepts and start analyzing on-going bargaining processes themselves. Part III deals with the process of negotiation, different strategies and tactics and the good negotiator’s most important qualities.

This illuminating and interactive module is supervised by Planpolitik. Created and developed by the political scientists Björn Warkalla and Simon Raiser, Planpolitik designs interactive formats on political and social topics and facilitates them on location and online such as simulation games, future workshops and competence trainings.

Join us and get ready to walk in the shoes of diplomats and top negotiators!
