Deep process expertise is a core foundation of successful negotiation management. To this end, the Centre’s advisory board is an important pillar of our work. The board is composed of expert practitioners that have all facilitated key global negotiations for many years in trade and environment, amongst others. This circle is complemented by leading academics in the field of international cooperation, specifically on global negotiations. The group supports the Centre’s advisory projects and provides input to its research leveraging its outstanding expertise in the field.
