The cross-disciplinary team tackles the inconsistencies of gender teaching as seen from the perspectives of law, business, and peace studies negotiation courses. In the process, they reconsider gender in the context of culture, demanding a forthright and coherent aproach to topics now too often cut up into little boxes of "content."
As part of a three-part project, this Volume 2 in the Rethinking Negotiation Teaching Series that was launced as "Round Two" in Istanbul. In organizing the Istanbul conference speical attentionwas given to the criticism of the artificial nature of a classroom environment at the previous year (Rome) conference. The organizers dispatched small teams of scholars into the city's famours bazaars to study how negotiation might be taught more actively, and into the city's less touristy neighborhoods with instructions requiring each team to negotiate internally. More than a fourth of the chapters examine "adventure learning" critically.
