The Institute for Global Negotiation (IGN) is an independent non-profit association aimed at improving the understanding of the nature and processes of global negotiation among students, academics and practitioners. Members of the IGN participate in research projects, develop teaching resources as well as organise events and courses. The IGN is hosted by the Chair of Political Philosophy at the University of Zurich and the Chair of Negotiation and Conflict Management at ETH Zurich.
On the 17th March 2022 we will mark the launch of the IGN with a public keynote lecture by Baroness Catherine Ashton, Chair of the Advisory Board. The event will be held at the University of Zurich as well as being streamed online.
Divided Societies: Negotiating the Past, Present and Future
On the 26-27 January the IGN in collaboration with the Chair of Political Philosophy at the University of Zurich will host a virtual conference examining the role that negotiating our past, present, and future can play in overcoming social divisions.
This spring our IGN Member Series will continue with a workshop on bilateral negotiations as well as presentations by practitioners and researchers on topics relating to global negotiation.
