Planners as Negotiators, Negotiation as Planning
Talk II of the Designing a Yes Seminar Series
When: Thursday, November 21st, 12:00 - 1:30 p.m.
Where: Austin Hall, Room 111, Harvard Law School
Speakers: Arana Hankin, Angelyn Chandler and Helen Lochhead (current Loeb Fellows)
Moderators: Dr. Shula Gilad (senior fellow, Program on Negotiation, HLS) and architect Karen Lee Bar-Sinai (LF 2013, fellow at the Program on Negotiation).
The talk will demonstrate how the work of planners and designers can be a useful source of tools for negotiators, and how negotiation can be viewed as a planning task. Drawing upon complex urban development projects from N.Y.C. and Sydney, Australia, the speakers will present strategies they have applied in their work to move beyond a "zero sum game” with large scale stakeholders. The talk is the second session of the Designing a Yes seminar series, exploring the links between planning, design and negotiations.
