Meeting Description:

The Global Negotiation Conference provides an opportunity for researchers, negotiation practitioners, and language teachers to share their insights and best practices in order to significantly enrich the pedagogic environment for spoken interaction for both non-native and native speakers of English. Knowledge of and practical familiarization with the pragmatic norms of negotiation within relevant communities of practice is an important aspect of socialization for native speakers and foreign language learners alike. One outstanding innovation of this Global Negotiation Conference will be workshop opportunities for participants to observe students negotiating at JUEMUN and learn about a Model United Nations simulation as a community of practice.
