As it is, 'negotiation' is a complex set of interactions between parties or individuals. Add to it the dimension of 'conflict', and we find ourselves on very slippery terrain. This online course is a primer on negotiating for conflict and dispute resolution. It aims at providing participants with the fundamental understanding and tools for complex negotiations under conflict situations. This course is also the first in a series and focuses on understanding conflict, procedures for dispute resolution, tools for negotiating under conflict situations as well as effective communication and decision making. This course emphasises learning by doing.
