Professor Carrie Menkel-Meadow (Georgetown University Law Center; University of California, Irvine Law School) has posted and essay entitled "Chronicling the Complexification of Negotiation Theory and Practice" on SSRN. It will be published in the Negotiation Journal.
The abstract states:
The essay reviews the content of twenty-five years of the Harvard Program on Negotiation's Negotiation Journal, identifying themes and issues explored on its pages in the past, the current issues challenging the field’s scholars and practitioners, and the issues likely to confront us in the future. It argues that while we in the field hoped for simple, elegant, and universal theories of negotiation and conflict resolution, the last twenty-five years have demonstrated the increasing complexification of negotiation theory and practice, from increased numbers of parties and issues, and dilemmas of intertemporal commitments, ethics, accountability, and relationships of private action to public responsibility.
