The Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School (PON) is an applied research center committed to improving the theory and practice of negotiation and dispute resolution. Put most simply, PON is working to change the way people, organizations, and nations resolve their disputes - shifting the process from "win-lose" outcomes to "all-gain" solutions.
PON is an interuniversity consortium involving faculty, graduate students, and administrative staff from a range of disciplines and professional schools at Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University, Simmons College, and other Boston-area schools.
Major goals of the Program on Negotiation are to:
- design, implement, and evaluate better dispute resolution practices;
- promote collaboration and communication among practitioners and scholars;
- develop educational programs and materials for instruction in negotiation and dispute resolution; and
- increase public awareness and understanding of successful conflict resolution efforts.
