PON’s co-founder Roger Fisher and the Middle East

By — on / Middle East Negotiation Initiatives

Professor Roger Fisher, PON co-founder and first Director of the Harvard Negotiation Project, advised both the Iranian and American governments during the Iran hostage crisis. His revolutionary “one-text” approach was used by the Administration of President Jimmy Carter in the lead-up to the successful 1978 Camp David Accords, signed by President Anwar Sadat of Egypt and Prime Minister Menachem Begin of Israel, which ended three decades of hostility and war between the two countries. Fisher also published a series of open letters to both the Israeli and Arab publics in his 1972 book, Dear Israelis, Dear Arabs. In 2001 he co-founded Israeli Palestinian Negotiation Partners (IPNP).
