The Negotiation Task Force (NTF) at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University promotes innovative solutions to Euro-Atlantic and Eurasian security challenges by creating spaces for cross-cultural negotiation research, training, and strategic analysis. We pioneer new models for high-impact knowledge dissemination, train practitioners in advanced negotiation skills, and build long-term conflict management capacity.


Teamwork: We unite a diverse team of scholars, students, and professionals to produce innovative negotiation research, analyses, and exercises.

Training: We host Red Horizon, an immersive global crisis exercise for national and international security practitioners.

Design: We develop interactive negotiation exercises and training simulations.

Research: We conduct impact-oriented negotiation research on current security issues in the Euro-Atlantic sphere and Eurasia.

Events: We present research findings at academic conferences and disseminate knowledge through Negotiation Boot Camps.


Students: Do you have a strong interest in international affairs or negotiation? Join our team as a Research Assistant or a Case Writer.

Scholars: Does your work focus on security issues in the Euro-Atlantic sphere or Eurasia? Join our international network of experts and collaborate with us on current research initiatives.
