Korea Negotiation Initiative

By PON Staffon / Harvard Negotiation Project, Korea Negotiation Initiative

The Korea Negotiation Initiative is a research project based at the Harvard Negotiation Project devoted to exploring the obstacles to a negotiated resolution of the Korean nuclear crisis. Particular focus is placed on identifying potential set up moves that would make negotiation possible, identifying areas for mutual gain, improving communication channels for reducing the risk of inadvertent war, and the potential role for third parties, informal and official, in facilitating a resolution. In conjunction with events at Harvard that will include knowledgeable and involved parties, early research products that we envision for this initiative will include at least two scholarly articles, one focused on the research questions mentioned and the second about the process of informal “Track 1.5” conversations.
