The Program on Negotiation (PON) is a university consortium dedicated to developing the theory and practice of negotiation and dispute resolution. As a community of scholars and practitioners, PON serves a unique role in the world negotiation community. Founded in 1983 as a special research project at Harvard Law School, PON includes faculty, students, and staff from Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Tufts University.
We develop and offer a wide range of role-play simulations and other interactive teaching exercises as well as books, educational videos, and curricular packages.
Our blog posts several new articles about negotiation, mediation, conflict resolution, and dealmaking each week.
