2022-2023 Program on Negotiation Graduate Research Fellows

Elizabeth Good
Ph.D. Candidate, Northwestern University Department of Political Science

Elizabeth Good is a Ph.D. Candidate and SSHRC Doctoral Fellow at Northwestern University. Her dissertation uses mixed methodology to explore women’s representation in peace processes. Elizabeth studies the influence of gendered power dynamics on women’s involvement in peace negotiations and the inclusion of provisions for women in final agreements. Elizabeth holds an M.A. in Political Science and a B.A. in International Relations and Geography from the University of British Columbia. She has worked for various Non-Governmental and International Organizations, including the United Nations Development Programme in Kosovo as a Gender Specialist.

Alexandra McAuliff
Ph.D. Candidate, Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University

Alexandra McAuliff is a doctoral candidate at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, where her work focuses on gender, negotiations, and peacebuilding. Her dissertation is titled The Troubles with Inclusion: Northern Ireland and Gendered Hierarchies of Peace. She is particularly interested in the limits of women’s inclusion in negotiations absent attention to the power hierarchies that inform these processes. In her dissertation work, she questions the foundational assumptions of negotiations, with specific attention to the ways militarized and masculinized power shapes the people and issues deemed conflict-related. To do so, McAuliff examines the process and legacy of the Good Friday Agreement in Northern Ireland and the ways gendered, racialized, and classed violence and insecurity continue to be experienced by those at the margins, despite twenty years of a political peace. In addition to her dissertation research, McAuliff is also part of a cross-university research team working on questions related to migration and diplomacy. At Fletcher, McAuliff serves as a Teaching Fellow and runs the Non-Violent Resistance Fellowship. Prior to pursuing her doctoral degree, she worked as a dialogue facilitator with a small peacebuilding group in Northern Ireland, as well as at Seeds of Peace, a youth-focused leadership organization. McAuliff holds a Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy from the Fletcher School, and a Bachelor of Arts from Colby College. While pursuing her master’s degree, she worked with the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice’s Women PeaceMakers Program.

Nousiainen gives expert legal lectures on various practice areas of commercial law, legal design and law & technology. She is an invited keynote speaker at conferences and seminars across the US, Europe and LATAM. In addition to her work at the Program on Negotiation, she is also conducting her research at the University of Cambridge Law (the UK). She holds a European Master in Law and Economics (EMLE) LL.M (Erasmus University Rotterdam), a Master Universitario di primo livello (University of Bologna), a Master d’Analyse Economique du Droit et des Institutions (Université Paul Cézanne Aix-Marseille III), and a BA in Law (International University Audentes, TUT, Katholieke Universiteit Leuven).

  • Good morning Sir,

    I am Diekime Egba, a Reintegration staff with the Office of the Special Adviser to the President on Niger Delta/Coordinator, Presidential Amnesty Programme (OSAPND/CPAP) in Nigeria. I am deployed to the department of Peace Building and Conflict Resolution.

    As part of efforts to boost capacity, the department is interested in embarking on a two Week intensive training programme outside Nigeria , and your institution is found worthy of undertaking such a programme. I do not know if you can put up a leadership course that touches on Peace Building or Conflict Resolution.

    Please, kindly revert if your institution can undertake the training so as to enable us communicate formally.

    Yours faithfully,

    Diekime Egba
