Dear all,

we would like to invite you to

The theme chosen is absolutely crucial in contemporary globalized world: INTERNATIONAL NEGOTIATIONS.
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 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. His first two overseas assignments
were at the Italian Permanent Representation to the European Union in Brussels and then in the Economic Department of the Italian
Embassy in Caracas, Venezuela. Among other things, he also served as Ambassador in Belgrade, Serbia. He was promoted to
the diplomatic rank of “Minister Plenipotentiary” in 2005 and presently serves at the Presidency of the Italian Council of Ministers as
Diplomatic Advisor.

The Workshop is open to all VIU students and the participants will receive a CERTIFICATE of attendance

If you want to take part into this interesting workshop, please write your name on the list that you can find on the entrance’s door of corridor 9, as usual.
