Harvard Negotiation & Mediation Clinical Program

In partnership with the Harvard University Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program (HNMCP) at Harvard Law School, Seeds of Peace has offered 263 of its American, Middle East, and South Asia Seeds a three-day training in basic mediation and negotiation since 2012 in Jerusalem, Dubai, Portland, and Cyprus.

The Seeds learned about negotiation in conflict settings by playing roles in a multiparty negotiation simulation cases and put their new skills to use as peer mediators in their schools, as facilitators in group dialogues, and in Seeds of Peace programs involving negotiation over core conflict issues.

“It was an honor to partner with Seeds of Peace,” said HNMCP Director Robert Bordone. “The path-breaking work they do every day is so inspiring and so important.”


“I was deeply impressed by the Seeds’ passion, energy, and enthusiasm for the material we had to share … I hope this is the beginning of a fruitful collaboration that will give us opportunities to engage Seeds and help develop their skills in conflict resolution, mediation, and peacebuilding.” — Robert Bordone, Director, Harvard Negotiation and Mediation Clinical Program
