Research suggests that parties who prepare for their mediations arrive at more satisfying and more durable settlements. Come to this workshop to explore lessons from negotiation preparation and learn how to apply these lessons to your mediation work.


  • This interactive plenary will highlight recent findings in the biological and social sciences, with close attention to their relevance for conflict resolution practitioners.
  • The session will contextualize new research within our existing knowledge base, and will invite participants to consider practical applications - some of which may challenge our current practices or past training.
