The Global Negotiation Conference (GNC) aims to bring together students of negotiation to further their practical knowledge while deepening their understanding of a current international issue. The inaugural GNC will focus on the international negotiations taking place to establish a new international treaty on climate change.
The program includes a day of presentations from experienced practitioners and academics focusing on the current negotiations taking place within the UNFCCC. Students will then take part in a simulation modelled on these negotiations. Teams will be assigned delegations prior to the conference and will be provided with information on their position which they will need to thoroughly prepare.
The competition is open to students from all disciplines with an interest in international negotiations. Teams can enter in groups of two or three with places assigned based upon their application form.
