The purpose of this assignment is to apply negotiating strategies, opening negotiating tactics, making concessions, closing negotiating tactics, managing conflict, and ethical considerations when negotiating. For this assignment, you will work in groups to negotiate a resolution to a nuclear free Korean Peninsula. You will work in your groups where one party (could be 1 person for those in small groups, or 2 people in larger groups) will take the position of the DPRK and the other party (could be 1 person for those in small groups, or 2 people in larger groups) will take the position of the USA. If you have additional member, they can scribe the interactions that take place as the two sides attempt to rectify the issue. You will be expected to draw from all sections of the book, along with information from the videos, to prepare your report. Your team can use whatever virtual platform you would like (Zoom, Teams, Etc) to perform the negotiations. This exercise will be graded based on your research and how you apply the theories of the book, to the negotiation process. Thus, it is not whether or not you negotiate a solution, but rather what happened during the discussions, as it relates to the book. The group will then be graded based on a written report they submit to [email protected] on, or before Midnight, June 18, 2020. Please include your members names in the report. I will send you a response email indicating I received the assignment.
