Negotiating in Business, Politics and Peace with Senator George J. Mitchell
Date and Time
Thursday, December 6, 2012 from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice Theatre
San Diego, CA 92110
When people look for an example of the possibility for peace in so-called intractable conflicts, Northern Ireland is often the model that demonstrates how violent groups can be integrated in a political process to move a country toward peace and reconciliation. Perhaps no one understands the challenges involved as intimately as Senator George J. Mitchell. Senator Mitchell took years of legal and political experience, plus strong support from the U.S. administration, into his role as independent chairman of the Northern Ireland Peace Talks.
Senator Mitchell – lawyer, judge, author, political leader, business advisor, author and peacebuilder –will share his perspectives on the role of the negotiator in business, politics and peace.
