On Monday (Sept. 27) Nobel Peace Prize recipient (2008) and former President of Finland (1994-2000), Martti Ahtisaari will be honored with the 2010 Great Negotiator Award presented by the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School and the Harvard Kennedy School’s Future of Diplomacy Project at Spangler Auditorium, Harvard Business School.

The Great Negotiator event will include an in-depth discussion among president Ahtisaari and faculty from the Program on Negotiation and Harvard Kennedy School about how he negotiated in complex, highly-charged situations. Harvard students, faculty and the general public are invited to attend all or part of the discussion taking place from 1:30-5 p.m., which provides an outstanding opportunity for cross-campus dialogue of negotiation and international politics.

The event schedule and drafts of the case studies of President Ahtisaari’s work in Aceh and Kosovo are available to download from the Program on Negotiation Web site in order to prepare for this year’s Great Negotiator discussion.
