Negotiation Task Force

Scholar Entrepreneur Initiative

The NTF 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.

The Negotiation Task Force (NTF) hosts the Red Horizon crisis exercise for senior leaders, trains the next generation of security experts at the Arms Control Negotiation Academy (ACONA), creates immersive negotiation simulations, and disseminates knowledge through negotiation boot camps.
