October 11 – 18, 2019

Engaging in outdoor activities while conducting negotiations has played a very important role in diplomacy and peace-making over the years. The informal atmosphere of such meetings allowed negotiators to discuss the issues more freely than in a formal setting, creating a unique space to explore shared interests.

United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) has developed an experiential course jointly organized by the Global Negotiation Initiative at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard University and the Abraham Path Initiative. This course provides a new and unique training ground for leaders and those interested in expanding their expertise in negotiation and conflict resolution.

The course will be in a “walk and talk” format focused on cultivating negotiation and conflict resolution skills while exploring a historical landscape in the Middle East and experiencing the region’s unique culture. The hike will lead participants on a track through Southern Jordan, starting in Dana village and ending in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Petra.

The academic and practical training portion of the journey will be led by Joshua Weiss, a Harvard faculty member specialized in negotiation, mediation and conflict resolution, along with an experienced co-facilitator. The hike will be led by expert local trekking guides.

This course is designed for anyone who has a strong interest in enhancing their negotiation and conflict resolution skills. Hikes will be an average of 16 – 22 km per day involving walking on rough terrains. To that purpose, we advise participants to be prepared for physical activity on this course.

Upon successful completion of the training course, the participants will be awarded with a Certificate issued jointly by the Harvard Global Negotiation Initiative and UNITAR.
