Jonathan Iwry Co-Authors Negotiation Journal Article Examining the Role of Worldviews in Conflict Resolution
In an article for the Negotiation Journal, IP transactions associate Jonathan Iwry examines the role of worldviews in negotiation and conflict resolution. The article was co-authored by Daniel Shapiro, founder and director of the Harvard International Negotiation Program and professor at Harvard Medical School/Mclean Hospital and the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School.
Jonathan and Professor Shapiro argue that worldviews play an increasingly important role in conflict resolution, and that understanding and learning to address differences in worldviews can help negotiators to overcome deep differences and find meaningful solutions to their conflicts. They offer a concrete definition of worldviews to assist negotiation scholars and practitioners, examine the psychological dimensions of worldviews in conflict situations, and offer strategies to help practitioners make worldviews an active part of their negotiation toolkit.
