Online Global Negotiation Conference 2021

Applications are now open for the online Global Negotiation Conference, which will take place from 6 to 9 July, and will be co-hosted by the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich.

The Global Negotiation Conference was founded in 2014 to encourage the practical and theoretical study of negotiation among students of all disciplines. Each year teams of graduate students from across the world take part in a series of workshops led by practitioners and academics culminating in a multiparty simulation on a current global issue. This year the topic of the conference is negotiating an international treaty on the role of business in upholding human rights.

More information on the program and how to apply can be found on the conference webpage:

  1. I’d love to hear details from some of those who have participated in or hosted this event.

  2. Dear Susan,

    Thanks for your message – I established the conference eight years ago out of my own interest in negotiation and mediation. I’d found that negotiation was often taught in business and law schools, but that it is applicable across all disciplines and life in general.

    The conference has always attracted students from a range of academic backgrounds and we try to do the same with our speakers.

    We’ve always received great reviews from participants – I think we’re at 100% who say they’d refer it to a friend – even last year when we went online! Going online has actually allowed us to reconnect with former participants and increased our exchanges (co-teaching, research, conferences are growing beyond this summer event).

    Back in 2016 I wrote a blog on the conference which outlines the experience in more detail:
