The 2019 PIN Conference on “Narratives and Negotiations” was developed by Professor Amrita Narlikar (GIGA/Universität Hamburg) and Professor Fen Osler Hampson (Carleton University). An impressive round of international scholars and practitioners found together to exchange expertise and shed light on the role of narratives in international negotiation processes. You will find the full programme here. The results of this fruitful discussion are planned to be published. The book project is underway.

The Processes of International Negotiation (PIN) network is a non-profit group of scholars and practitioners that encourages and organises research on a broad spectrum of topics related to international negotiation seen as a process. Its objectives include the dissemination of new knowledge about negotiation as widely as possible, and fostering collaboration between scholars and practitioners interested in the subject, for the purpose of improving analysis and practice of negotiation worldwide. Since 2018 the network is hosted by the GIGA.
