Negotiating Networked Coordination: Decentralized Structures and Negotiation Processes in Post-Conflict Peacebuilding

Event Date: Wednesday April 16, 2008
Time: 12:15 P.M.
Location: Pound Hall 108, Harvard Law School

Join us for a discussion with Andrea Strimling. Strimling’s dissertation focuses on the challenge of achieving coordination among the diverse organizations involved in post-conflict peacebuilding – governmental and nongovernmental, civilian and military, local and international. She argues that coordination by command is not an option when dealing with autonomous organizations organized in nonhierarchical networks.

Ms. Strimling is a co-founder of the Alliance for Peacebuilding (AfP), as well as a current member and former chair of its board of directors. She has also published extensively and taught on the role of negotiation in inter-organizational coordination.
