Lawrence Susskind and Daniel Shapiro were presenters at the CPR (International Institute for Conflict Prevention & Resolution) 2007 Annual Meeting.
Professor Susskind guided the group of 180 attendees, split into teams of six, through a multiparty negotiation based on the redevelopment of the World Trade Center site. The reaction? Reported one participant: “I have been coming to CPR meetings for years and this was one of the best programs ever.” Said another: “Superb problem and exercise. It was great.”
Professor Shapiro presented a lecture/demonstration based on his CPR Award-winning book, Beyond Reason: Using Emotions as You Negotiate, which was described by participants as “brillant.”
