The theme chosen is absolutely crucial in contemporary globalized world:
Assuming that in the future we shall face growing difficulties in the provision of essential goods (water, energy, food), the alternative is to resolve conflict through force or negotiation.
The aim of the workshop is to show what negotiation is about and how its success will depend on finding a solution that turns out to be the most advantageous to all the parties involved.
The workshop will address the following themes:
- Introduction to International Negotiation: Conflicts and Agreements
- Competition and Collaboration: The Theory of Games
- The Negotiating Process: Simulation Game (afternoon session)
The Workshop will be coordinated by Ambassador ALESSANDRO MEROLA, who joined the Italian diplomatic service in 1972 and began his career by serving in the Directorate General for Personnel and Administration.
