This third volume in the Rethinking Negotiation Teaching book series critically examines what is taught in contemporary negotiation courses and how they are taught, with special emphasis on how best to "translate" teaching methodology to succeed with diverse, global audiences.
In May 2010, more than 50 of the world's leading negotiation scholars gathered in Beijing, China for the Rethinking Negotiation Teaching project’s third international conference designed to critically examine what is taught in contemporary negotiation courses and how we teach them, with special emphasis on how best to "translate" teaching methodology to succeed with diverse, global audiences. We chose China is the ideal venue to conclude our project’s inquiry, not only because of its own long history with negotiation, internal and external to the country, but because it is a nation with which, tensions or no tensions, every other nation must negotiate in the future. Yet, China has been almost unrepresented in the modern literature – at least, in the literature that is expressly about “negotiation.” Chinese scholars and practitioners also have yet to assert much influence in the global negotiation training market. Our hope was that the conference would serve as a springboard for the entry into this field, at a sophisticated level, of Chinese and other Asian scholars whose deep experience in many related subjects has yet to be fully felt in their implications for the field of negotiation. The contents of this volume, as well as the fourth and final volume in this teaching series – Educating Negotiators for a Connected World (Honeyman, Coben, and Lee, December 2012), suggest we may have succeeded in that particular goal.
