consists of a conflict analysis of an international conflict (post-1945, but NOT the war between EritreaEthiopia), drawing on relevant negotiation literature and theory. It will include identifying primary and
secondary parties, positions, interests, options, strategic environment, etc. The next step is to develop a strategy
briefing for one of the parties in the conflict you have analysed. In the briefing, you will be providing advice as
to how that party should proceed with the negotiation, given the data in the conflict analysis. It should also
include attention to preparation, power dynamics, culture and gender issues where relevant, and coalitions. The
conflict does NOT have to be on-going, however, we were asked to design a negotiation strategy and it may feel
odd to do this for a conflict that is settled.
In this case, our professor suggested that we select a time period when the conflict was still on-going (PRIOR to
the start of any negotiations), and base our advise on our knowledge of the situation at the time. In this essay, we
are not supposed to analyse the effectiveness of our strategic advise, but to evaluate any advise based on the
information available to the parties at the selected time period.
It may be a bit awkward, but it should be possible to write such an advise even if the parties then actually
negotiated. In this essay, we are not expected to evaluate the negotiations (so whether the strategy ‘worked’), but
rather what our advise would have been based on the information the parties held PRIOR to the negotiations
(hence the importance to clearly identify the period that you are analysing). We can still argue that the
negotiation strategy they chose was indeed the best one imaginable (or argue that they could have picked a
‘better’ one). I’m going to attach a sample of the essay but not my work. The subject area is international
relations, I was asked to put public relations since my subject area was not stated. Also, referencing is important
as well as plagiarism-free work
