Negotiation Task Force

Scholar-Entrepreneur Initiative

The NTF, incubated at the Davis Center, promotes innovative solutions to global security challenges by creating spaces for cross-cultural negotiation research, training, and strategic analysis. More information below.

The Negotiation Task Force (NTF) was incubated in 2019 through the Davis Center's Scholar-Entrepreneur Initiative. In 2023, the NTF transitioned out of the center to become an independent organization. For more information about the NTF, please visit:
