January 22 | World Affairs Council of Hilton Head | Col. David Maxwell
What is the nature of the Kim Family Regime and why is it important to the United States? There are five major issues surrounding Korea: war, instability and regime collapse, human rights, proliferation, and global illicit activities, and unification. South Korea and the US remain blood allies but there is always friction within the alliance that must be managed. While North Korea is an existential threat to South Korea it is in the US national interest to prevent conflict and if it (or regime collapse) occurs to ensure that what follows is a secure, stable, economically vibrant, non-nuclear peninsula unified under a liberal constitutional form of government that might be called the United Republic of Korea.
January 26 | World Affairs Council of Western Massachusetts | Dan Shapiro on Arab-Israeli Conflict Negotiation
The World Affairs Council of Western Massachusetts is pleased to partner with the MS in Leadership and Negotiation at Bay Path University in presenting Dr. Daniel Shapiro at virtual presentation on Negotiating the Non Negotiables in the Arab-Israeli Conflict and Beyond on Tuesday, January 26, 2021 7:00 PM EST.
Our world is awash in conflict–from the on-going Arab-Israeli conflict to the combusting mix of the pandemic, economic turmoil, and political divisiveness. Why are modern conflicts so difficult to resolve, and what can we do about it? Drawing on his work in the Middle East and elsewhere, Dr. Shapiro will present a framework he has developed to illuminate underlying psychological complexities fueling present-day conflict—and will offer insight on how to move forward.
Dr. Daniel Shapiro is the founder and director of the Harvard International Negotiation Program. Dr. Shapiro teaches a highly evaluated course on negotiation at Harvard College; instructs psychology interns at Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital; and leads executive education sessions at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, Harvard Kennedy School, and Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital. He has served on the faculty at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, Tufts University, and at the Sloan School of Management at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is author of Negotiating the Nonnegotiable and is coauthor with Roger Fisher of Beyond Reason: Using Emotions as You Negotiate.
