By — on / Negotiation Skills

On December 8, 2014, Congressman-Elect Seth Moulton and Managing Director Susan Hackley co-presented at Harvard’s Herbert C. Kelman Seminar on International Conflict Analysis and Resolution. This seminar series is sponsored by the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, the Nieman Foundation for Journalism, the Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy, The Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, and Boston area members of the Alliance for Peacebuilding. The theme for the Kelman Seminar is “Negotiation, Conflict and the News Media”.

Massachusetts Congressman-elect Seth Moulton was born and raised in northeastern Massachusetts and attended Phillips Academy Andover and Harvard University with the help of scholarships and student loans. After his graduation from Harvard in 2001, Moulton joined the United States Marine Corps, where he served four tours of duty in Iraq as an infantry officer between 2003 and 2008. After leaving the Marine Corps in 2008, Moulton returned to Harvard and earned degrees from the Harvard Business School and Harvard Kennedy School. Congressman-elect Moulton made
veterans’ health care a priority during his campaign and will champion this cause during his time in Congress.

Susan Hackley is Managing Director of the Program on Negotiation and a graduate of the Harvard Kennedy School. Her research interests include the need for civilian Americans and military Americans to explore and celebrate their shared values and have better conversations about war, the role of the media in shaping and reporting on conflict, and the overlap between the fields of negotiation and nonviolent action. Previously, Hackley was Chair of the Alliance for Peacebuilding in Washington, DC, and she is currently producing a documentary film called “A Child’s Guide to War”, focusing on the impact of war on America’s children and families.
