Georgetown Negotiation Network

Building Bridges, Building Leadership

The Baker Center is pleased to support the Georgetown Negotiation Network, an interdisciplinary platform for students to develop a diverse skill set in negotiation and conflict resolution and to contribute to work at the intersection of politics, policy, and diplomacy.

Learning through Action

Through clinics, live projects with the State Department Diplomacy Lab, and engagement with local practitioners, participants will develop analytical and practical skills in negotiation and diplomacy while contributing to the resolution of real-world policy challenges.


Skill Building Clinics

Skill Building Clinics introduce analytical frameworks and practical tools through topics such as interpersonal barriers to reaching agreement, crisis leadership, and the role of influence and persuasion. Check out one of our past Skill Building Clinics on Crisis Leadership.



Diplomacy Lab

Diplomacy Lab Events offer intimate learning opportunities with subject matter experts for students and faculty working on real-world projects with the State Department Diplomacy Lab. Learn about a previous Diplomacy Lab on Diplomacy in the Absence of Force.




Career Panel

The Career Panel creates opportunities for students to network with negotiation and dispute resolution practitioners from government, business, and non-profit organizations. Check out one of our recent networking events for Careers in Negotiation and Conflict Resolution.
