Daniel Shapiro is a Lecturer on Law at Harvard Law School and on the faculty in the psychiatry department at Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital. He is the founder and director of the "International Negotiation Initiative" (INI), based at the Harvard Negotiation Project and formally affiliated with the psychiatry department at Harvard Medical School/McLean Hospital. INI focuses on reducing identity-based conflict, especially where social, political, ethnic, or religious violence is present or imminent. INI faculty and students research topics at the intersection of international conflict management, psychology, and law. Dan's course at Harvard Law School, "Negotiation: Dealing with Emotions," draws on a framework he and Professor Roger Fisher developed to explore the emotional dimension of negotiation, including how to utilize the power of emotions in dealing with volatile international conflict situations. Fisher and Shapiro recently published many of their ideas in Beyond Reason: Using Emotions as You Negotiate. Dan also is Associate Director of the Harvard Negotiation Project, which has a long history of work with individuals and governments in South Africa, Latin America, the Mideast, the Balkans, and elsewhere. Much of Dan's time has been spent traveling across Eastern and Central Europe, working with colleagues there to spread ideas on the theory and practice of conflict management and negotiation, and he has developed a conflict management program that now reaches nearly one million people across more than 25 countries. Dan has conducted negotiation training in numerous countries around the world, including in hotbeds of violence such as in Serbia and Croatia in the early 1990's. He also has conducted negotiation trainings for political leaders from Serbia, Macedonia, the Middle East, and elsewhere.
