1. 'Top Ten List' Assignment

5% of grade.

Students are required to submit a (David Letterman-style) list of the ‘Top Ten’ statements of prescriptive advice they would offer to a negotiator about to enter a major international multilateral negotiation. The advice should be prescriptive, written in clear and concise terms (around 25 words or less per item), should be prioritized, and should be specific to multilateral negotiations. This assignment will become the basis of last day of class.
