The Environmental Negotiation and Mediation class offers a tour of the environmental, natural resources, and public policy negotiation world, from two-party real estate “green development” discussions to multi-party environmental justice policy issues to international natural resources mediations. There is a focus on hands-on learning and practical skills development. The course is designed to build students’ mutual-gains and cross-cultural negotiation skills throughout the semester, through participating in a multitude of simulations.
Students will experience different negotiation perspectives first-hand by taking on the roles of attorney, client, task force member and national delegate, mediator. The first-hand experience will allow for focus on problem-solving approaches and gaining a sense for the dynamics of complex negotiations involving multiple stakeholders.
