The Middle East Negotiation Initiative (MENI) encompasses a wide range of Middle East-related activities at the Program on Negotiation. Faculty affiliates and research fellows work closely with practitioners in the field and engage in research and scholarship on key topics relating to Middle East peace and negotiations. Through publications, workshops and multi-media resources, MENI affiliates disseminate problem-solving methodology and share negotiation methods and techniques that can help solve the difficult challenges in the Middle East. In situations where MENI-affiliated initiatives may proceed with relative autonomy, MENI provides coordination and assistance.
Professors Robert Mnookin and James Sebenius provide general oversight to the Initiative. MENI is managed by Shula Gilad, Senior Fellow at the Program on Negotiation.
The Program on Negotiation has a long tradition of focusing its efforts on the Middle East. While the many complex challenges in the Middle East have evolved over time, PON’s dedication to the region remains unchanged.
