The two-week program focuses on the cutting edge of alternative dispute resolution in a cross-cultural setting. The 3 credit hours involve a combination of workshops, role-play exercises, lectures and other presentations. Each workshop group is diversified to contain as many nationalities as possible, creating an international experience like no other program of its kind.The lectures and small group sessions will provide the standard training in both the theory and basic skills of negotiation and mediation. One major objective is to develop negotiation and mediation skills in cross-cultural transactions involving participants of different nationalities and diverging expectations. Even experienced mediators in the U.S., where the use of mediation has advanced rapidly in recent years, encounter unexpected pitfalls when applying their skills in mediations between parties from different countries and cultures.
