Red Horizon

RED HORIZON: Force and Diplomacy in Eurasia is an immersive Executive Education program that provides seasoned and emerging leaders from national security, academia, and industry with a unique training space to push their negotiation and decision-making skills to the next level.

Sharpen your negotiation skills, address geopolitical crises, and emerge as a leader who can turn chaos to their advantage. ​Upon completion of the three-day virtual workshop, you will receive an official Certificate of Completion issued by the Negotiation Task Force.

When does the event take place?

Red Horizon takes place annually on the Harvard University campus. The next iteration of the program will take place in person on:

  • ​Friday, December 9, 2022, 9am-9pm ET
  • Saturday, December 10, 2022, 9am-7pm ET
  • Sunday, December 11, 2022, 9am-3pm ET

How does Red Horizon work?

You will be assigned to a team (U.S., China, Russia, or NATO) and receive a confidential briefing that outlines your objectives. Your realistic actor profile is created from data-driven research informed by political trends across the Eurasian sphere and the Indo-Pacific. The weekend features lectures and discussions, a full-day immersive crisis exercise, and a negotiation debrief facilitated by Negotiation Task Force experts.

“An irreplaceable experience that sharpened my negotiation and decision-making skills and improved my situational analysis.”
