About the talk:

Every year the Program on Negotiation welcomes fellows and scholars to Cambridge, MA. Our visitors spend six months to a year researching and writing about current topics in the fields of negotiation and mediation, with the goal of publishing their work after their time at PON.

This lunch provides an opportunity for this year’s two Graduate Research Fellows, Alexandros Sarris and Sarah Woodside, and Visiting Scholar Stefanos Mouzas, to share their findings with the negotiation community. Sarris, a PhD candidate at the University of Leiden, will detail his timely work on negotiations in the Arctic, specifically concerning legal disputes among an international field of players. Woodside, a PhD candidate at Boston College, will speak about her research on multi-tier, multi-constituent negotiations at workplaces, a topic of importance for anyone in the workforce today. Finally, Mouzas, Professor of Marketing and Strategy at Lancaster University Management School, will share his research on umbrella agreements in businesses; specifically how these negotiations can go awry for the parties involved.

Join us for a fascinating hour of informal lecture, Q&A, and discussion. You will be sure to come away with new ideas, and new negotiation tips!
