|Objective||This seminar & simulation will help students to:
- gain an intellectual understanding of negotiators’ behavior and of central concepts in negotiation as they apply in the European Union institutional context;
- improve their ability to analyze the negotiation situation and learn how to develop a toolkit of useful negotiation skills, strategies, and approaches adapted to work in the European institutional context.
