Harvard Negotiation Project

The mission of the Harvard Negotiation Project (HNP) is to improve the theory and practice of conflict resolution and negotiation by working on real world conflict intervention, theory building, education and training, and writing and disseminating new ideas. Under the leadership of HNP’s Director, Professor James Sebenius, HNP is focusing on a number of themes. Current initiatives include the Great Negotiator Study Initiative and the China Negotiation Initiative. Bruce Patton, Co-Founder and Distinguished Fellow, is leading the Rebuild Congress Initiative. Two existing initiatives that continue under HNP are the Harvard International Negotiation Program, directed by HLS Lecturer on Law and HMS Assistant Professor Daniel Shapiro, and the Global Negotiation Initiative, co-founded and led by William Ury, Distinguished Senior Fellow.
